Have fun tonight, but be careful. Since it’s New Year’s Eve, the Dallas Police Department has instated a no-refusal DWI initiative. This means that officers will secure a search warrant from on call judges or magistrates “for a blood sample from all persons arrested for DWI who refuse to voluntarily give a breath and/or blood sample.” The policy takes effect tonight Dec. 31 at 6:00 p.m. and ends Monday, Jan. 4 at 6:00 a.m. Stay sober, call a cab or download the latest version of Uber or Lyft.
