Dallas police push for blood test for all DWI suspects

The Dallas police department want to join other cities like Phoenix, AZ, in mandating a blood test for all DWI suspects.

Instead of using breathalyzer tests, police would use blood tests only to confirm suspicions of drunk driving. If a suspect refused the test, police could then obtain a search warrant to obtain blood samples. However, the costs to implement this program are likely too high for the time being. Already, a third of all 3,600 DWI suspects in Dallas each year undergo blood testing.

If you have been charged with drunk driving, you need experienced legal representation on your side. Contact Dallas DWI lawyer Mark T. Lassiter by calling (214) 845-7007 today.
