“No Refusal” campaign in place for Fourth of July holiday

Posted on July 2nd, 2012 No Comments

Over the Fourth of July in Texas, suspected drunk drivers will not be allowed to refuse breathalyzers or blood tests if they are pulled over.

This “No Refusal” campaign has been instituted to decrease the amount of drunk driving accidents over the Fourth of July holiday. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the rate of alcohol-related car accident fatalities is the highest over this period. Last year in Texas, there were 308 deaths related to driving drunk on the Fourth of July.

Drivers who are pulled over this year will either have to consent to a breathalyzer test or a blood test. This added measure will be in place in order to deter individuals from getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. Officers across Texas have stated that the number of drunk driving fatalities has decreased in the years since the “No Refusal” program has been in place.

Please contact the reckless driving lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers by calling (210) 999-9999 today if you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident that was caused by a drunk or reckless driver.
