Drivers in Collin and across the state need to be aware of the law of implied consent. This means that they are required to take a breath test when asked to do so by a law enforcement officer. Increasingly, the decision is made by counties like Collin to implement no-refusal crackdowns in which drivers who indicate that they might be intoxicated will be required to take a breath or blood test to determine the amount of alcohol in their blood.
The idea behind this is to prevent people from going out on the road if they believe they might be impaired. Many are unaware of the law of implied consent requiring the acquiescence to a breath test with various consequences for failing to take the test. They think they have the right to refuse when they really don't. At various times in Collin, there will be a notice served that drivers who might be drunk will be stopped by police and asked to take a breath test.
