APD on the prowl for DWI

Monday, November 21, 2022 by Tai Moses

While most Austinites will be gathered around the table this Thanksgiving Day, Austin police officers will be patrolling the streets and keeping a sharp eye out for intoxicated drivers. The department’s No Refusal initiative will be in effect all week, 9:30 p.m.-5:30 a.m., ending Sunday, Nov. 27. As APD explains, the public safety initiative “is an effort to enforce DWI laws and keep the public safe by encouraging drivers to make responsible decisions and to apply for blood search warrants on suspects who refuse to provide a breath or blood specimen as required by law.” In plain English? Make good choices and don’t drink and drive.
