DPD Reminds, If You Drink and Drive This Long Holiday Weekend, You May Also Give Blood
Used to be a time, not long ago, when DPD and Mothers Against Drunk Driving held press conferences announcing holiday-weekend No-Refusal Initiatives. Now, DPD just sends press releases. Long story short: The Labor Day blood drive begins at 6 p.m. tomorrow and runs through 6 a.m. Tuesday. Reminds DPD, "During this initiative, if a person is arrested for DWI and refuses to voluntarily provide a breath or blood sample, the arresting officer will secure a search warrant and direct health care professionals to obtain a blood sample and have it forwarded to the District Attorney's office for filing."
