Kane County will be holding “no refusal” operations thru Thanksgiving

From Ted Schnell of the Geneva Patch:

If you’ve been arrested for driving under the influence, you shouldn’t have been driving, period. But if you think it’s a smart move to refuse to take a breath test when you are arrested for DUI, don’t count on it.

The Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office is planning with local police to conduct three “no-refusal” operations over the next 43 days—on the weekend before Halloween and on the night before Thanksgiving—to discourage drunken driving

The first of the two operations will be Oct. 26-27 and Oct. 27-28, the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office announced in a release, and the second will be Nov. 21-22. They will begin in the evening and end after midnight.

Many police agencies already run enhanced DUI patrols on the weekend before Halloween and the night before Thanksgiving. The “no refusal” operations give police another tool to use during DUI arrests.
