Judge Don Adams Helps Fight DWIs

"Judge Don Adams, our Democratic judge in Criminal District Court #2 will be participating in the Memorial Day No-Refusal Weekend and has volunteered his time this holiday weekend to aid the Dallas Police Department and the Dallas County Sheriff's Office in protecting our citizens from the dangers posed by those that choose to drive while impaired by alcohol or drugs. Have a safe Memorial Weekend!"

For more on this program, see this article: " Over the last year, Fort Worth, Arlington, Richardson, Plano and other cities have employed "no refusal" weekends, which require motorists to give blood samples if police suspect they are intoxicated and they refuse Breathalyzer tests. The blood is drawn after authorities obtain a search warrant. ... Fort Worth held its first "no refusal" weekend over the New Year's holiday and had no serious or fatal accidents from drunken driving." There's more in this article.
