No-refusal season underway

Monday, December 20, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

Austin police have begun holiday impaired-driving enforcement. The No Refusal Initiative is underway and will run through Jan. 1. During this time, in an effort to enforce DWI laws, police can collect blood evidence from those suspected of driving under the influence or while intoxicated by quickly obtaining warrants for those that refuse breathalyzers.
