Zero Refusal For Suspected Drunk Drivers

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is kicking off a multiple agency operation to get drunk drivers off the roads. Troopers said patrols will be spread out along I44 on Friday night. They will be stationed between the Red River and Walters starting at 8 p.m. Officials said every single driver on that stretch of road will be stopped for a sobriety check.

The initiative is called "The Zero Refusal/Zero Tolerance Operation." If law enforcement officers suspect a driver is intoxicated, tests will be administered to determine sobriety. Tests include drawing blood on-site if needed. If a driver refuses to participate, a search warrant will be signed by a judge.
