Texas Police Enact No-Refusal on Fourth of July

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on July 3, 2012

The Fourth of July ranks number one nationally for alcohol-related fatal crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. On July 4th in 2011, Texas saw 308 alcohol-related crashes. More than 1,400 Texans were arrested for DWI.

Officers will be cracking down on drunk driving this Independence Day with a “No Refusal” campaign, so motorists who are suspected for driving while intoxicated are required to provide a breath or blood sample to the police. If they refuse, they can be taken to jail, and a judge will sign an expedited search warrant that requires a mandatory blood sample to be taken.

“No Refusal” campaigns have resulted in a significant drop in DWIs. Yet, more than 1,000 Texans are killed annually because of drunk drivers. Texas is ranked as the nation’s deadliest for DWI deaths.

The TxDOT recently updated its “Faces of Drunk Driving” website, which portrays the real-life stories of people involved in DWI accidents. The new story is about Sean Carter who was a 22-year-old college student when he and his friend were both drunk one night, his friend drove him, and they got in a severe accident. Sean now sits in a wheelchair and must use a computer to talk.

“Don’t drink and drive, and please don’t make my mistake of riding with someone who has been drinking,” Carter said.

If your life has been tragically affected by a drunk driver, you should not have to deal with pain and economic loss because of someone’s bad choices. Imagine the relief you will feel once you contact the Law Office of W.T. Johnson today.
