During these weekends, law enforcement signals its intent to conduct routine traffic stops—at checkpoints or otherwise—in order to probe drivers for potential drunk driving offenses.

If you’re pulled over by the police during a no refusal weekend, it’s possible to refuse a breath or blood BAC test. However, unlike at other times, police on no refusal weekends will immediately contact a judge at any time of day in order to secure an arrest or detention warrant for a driver suspected of DWI
