Authorities will be on the lookout for drunk drivers and boaters this Memorial Day weekend. Harris County District Attorney Pat Lykos wants to make sure the roads are safe over the holiday. The no-refusal weekend will begin at 10pm and will last through Monday. Blood samples will be taken from suspected DWI drivers if they refuse to take a voluntary breath test.

Last year, the no refusal program led to 247 DWI-related charges during the Memorial Day weekend.
