    Drivers pulled over in Tarrant County and asked to take a breathalyzer test will not be able to say no this weekend.

    'No Refusal' weekend begins Friday at 9:30 p.m. and ends Sunday at 5:30 a.m.

    Usually, police officers in Texas have to get a warrant if someone refuses to take the breath test. But, during this weekend, judges will be on call to issue warrants when needed, so drivers will not be able to refuse the test.

    The purpose of No Refusal weekends are to decrease the number of drunk drivers.
