UPDATE: No Refusal DWI Initiative –Labor Day Wave

The Dallas Police Department has concluded its Labor Day (Impaired Driving Mobilization) initiative which ran during the enforcement period of August 18-September 5, 2017.  The Dallas Police Department had 86 DWI arrests during this enforcement period. We will continue working hard by keeping intoxicated drivers off the streets with our zero tolerance on DWI’s.

Costs associated with DWI arrest and conviction can add up to more than $17,000 for bail, legal fees, court appearances, court-ordered classes, vehicle insurance increases and other expenses.

Choose your ride. Drink. Drive. Go to Jail.
