The Austin Police Department (APD) will conduct a No Refusal Initiative that will coincide with the upcoming July 4th holiday. This initiative will be in effect Thursday, July 2, 2020 through Sunday, July 5, 2020 and will run 10 p.m. - 5 a.m. each day.
This initiative is an effort to enforce DWI laws, 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.
APD is continuously focused on preventing fatalities on the streets and highways of Austin due to intoxicated drivers. The department is dedicated to making Austin safe for residents and visitors through education and enforcement.
There is never an excuse to drink and drive! Plan a safe ride home.
