Today, Texas becomes the first state in the country to institute a statewide no-refusal campaign for the July 4 holiday weekend, which has repeatedly ranked as the deadliest holiday of the year for alcohol-related crashes. More than 200 law-enforcement agencies across the state will seek warrants to draw blood from any driver suspected of drinking who refuses to submit to a breathalyzer test. The crackdown begins at 6 p.m. today and ends at 6 a.m., Tuesday, July 5.

Only in america can someone yank you out of your car and draw your blood based on a whim. Is an odd definition of freedom, no?
