Austin police arrested 30 people for drunken driving Saturday as part of their no-refusal initiative for Memorial Day weekend, bringing the total number of no-refusal arrests so far to 58.
No-refusal means police can instantly get a warrant for a blood draw for any drivers or boaters who refuse a breathalyzer test. Of the 30 people arrested Saturday, 10 provided breath tests and 20 had their blood drawn.
The no-refusal initiative kicked off Friday night and runs through 5 a.m. Tuesday in Central Texas.
Local law enforcement officials are reminding people to plan ahead and set up a safe ride home before they start drinking.
(And if you don’t (or if you do), they can strap you down and draw your blood.)
