“No Refusal” Weekend in Kilgore for the New Year Holiday

Released by The Kilgore Police Department:

KILGORE, TX - The Kilgore Police Department will be out in force this New Year's weekend targeting drunk drivers. If you choose to drink and drive, within the City of Kilgore, you will go to jail.

The Kilgore Police Department maintains a zero tolerance policy in regards to DWI enforcement. Drunk driving is not a choice it's a crime. This weekend has been declared a "no refusal" weekend. This means if you are stopped for drunk driving and refuse to provide a blood or breathe specimen, an immediate search warrant will be sought and a blood specimen obtained through the warrant.

The Gregg County District Attorney's Office is assisting with the effort and extra Kilgore Police Officers will be working on the street. While drunk driving will be the main target, other traffic safety concerns will be addressed such as speeding and seatbelt violations.

The Kilgore Police Department is committed to lowering deaths and injuries resulting from drunk driving. The safety of our citizens and community is paramount. The Kilgore Police Department wants everyone to have a safe and fun New Year's
