DWI Arrests in Montgomery County Increase by 600 in 2012 Due to New 'Refusal Program'

According to the figures recently released by the Montgomery County Attorney’s Office there has been a significant increase in the number of DWI's since 2011.

Online PR News – 31-January-2013 – Houston, Texas – According to the figures recently released by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office there has been a significant increase in the number of DWI arrests since 2011. In a year which also saw several high-profile fatalities the 2012 fiscal year which runs from October 2011 to September 2012 recorded 1,788 regular DWIs and 778 NO Refusal DWIs which is an increase of 600 over 2011.

160 people were arrested for DWIs in September alone due to an increased amount of patrols, which stemmed from the Houston-Galveston Area Council grant. Assistant District Attorney Warren Diepraam, chief of the Vehicular Crimes Division for the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office said that although recent years have seen a decline in intoxication manslaughter, the figures for 2012 show that law enforcement “can’t afford to leave their guard down.”

Diepraam puts the increase in arrests down to the introduction of the “No Refusal” program which allows arresting officers to get a warrant to test for alcohol levels in a driver’s blood upon refusal by the driver to give blood. Diepraam said: “Due to the No Refusal program, more officers are willing and able to work DWI cases now and by arresting impaired drivers on our roadways, it decreases the chances of a fatality.”
