No Refusal Weekends

Bexar County will reportedly continue its forced blood draws of DWI suspects throughout the year.  Those who refuse both breath and blood tests could face additional charges for resisting arrest.  This program has been used around the state over the past eighteen months.  (Austin, San Antonio, Seguin, Colin County, Dallas-Fort Worth)  The “Anatomy of a No-Refusal Weekend” appears here on the Texas District and County Attorney Association website.

Interestingly, an Austin American Statesman article published in February, 2009, notes that about half of all those arreted refuse a breath test, while nearly all of elected officials asked to submit to a breath test refuse.
