Eugene listeners will be interested to know that if they’re stopped at a police checkpoint this coming weekend, they had better agree to perform a Breathalyzer test, or risk being forced to have their blood drawn by the police.

During the coming holiday weekend in Eugene, police will implement a policy to forcibly draw blood from people who refuse to take an alcohol Breathalyzer test.
The so-called ‘no refusal’ policy will likely result in people being strapped down to gurneys and forced to have their blood drawn.
 
That’s been the result of ‘no refusal’ policies in other cities where they’ve been implemented.
