District Attorney Susan Reed is targeting drunk drivers in Bexar County, in cooperation with the various law enforcement agencies, by implementing a No Refusal program in effect everyday. Everyone who is arrested for a driving while intoxicated offense and refuses to give a sample of their breath or blood will have a sample of their blood taken pursuant to a search warrant.

The No Refusal program is an initiative of the District Attorney’s Office implemented to keep everyone safe from intoxicated drivers. The District Attorney’s Office encourages everyone to be safe and smart on the roads: don’t drink and drive.
