The Austin Police Department will enforce a “No-Refusal” initiative for Super Bowl Sunday.
The initiative will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 2, 2014 and end on Monday, February 3, 2014 at 5 a.m.
During the same time in 2013, 21 persons were arrested for Driving While Intoxicated.
The initiative is an effort to enforce DWI laws, keep the public safe, and to conduct blood search warrants on suspects who refuse to give a breath or blood specimen as required by law.
