On the road to no refusal weekends everyday

Don't look here for sympathy.

Go take a cab or have a designated driver.

Better yet, stop at the store, get a bunch of booze and drink yourself into a stupor at home.  Just not on the road.

Thank you.

District Attorney expands 'no refusal' weekends
By Peter J. Holley - Express-News

There have been 11 “no refusal” weekends here since May 2008, when the Bexar County district attorney's office first deployed the legal machinery that allows authorities to draw blood from drunken-driving suspects whether they agree or not.

More than 21/2 years later, the county is primed to implement the policy full time, District Attorney Susan Reed said.

“This was always my plan,” she said, noting her office has applied for grant money from the Texas Department of Transportation that would make Bexar a seven-days-a-week “no refusal” county by spring.
