DWI “No Refusal” New Year’s Eve in Collin/Dallas Counties–Be safe don’t drink and drive

Please be careful celebrating this New Year’s Eve. If you are going to be enjoying some holiday cheer this evening, turn over those keys to a sober driver or call a cab. Take it from me; the alternative is simply not worth it. I’m sure you have seen all the overhead roadway signs this holiday season warning you to drive sober or get pulled over–The police will be on high alert this evening. You can bet that tonight will be a “no refusal” weekend for Dallas and Collin Counties.

What “No refusal” means is that if you get pulled over on suspicion of DWI you will be given the option of providing a breath or blood sample. If you refuse to provide a breath or blood sample, the police officer will apply for a warrant to take a blood sample to measure your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Tonight, there will be judges on call 24 hours a day to sign these “blood” warrants.

Don’t take a chance tonight! There is too much to risk. Turn over the keys or call a cab. It’s just not worth it. Enjoy your New Year, but please be safe.
