The police department was able to have more officers on duty because of a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation to help keep their eye out for drivers who were driving impaired. During the break, their extra officers arrested nine DWI drivers and three other arrests for other crimes. During the week there were no car accident fatalities.

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.
