GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas—Drivers suspected of being intoxicated during the Lone Star Rally weekend won’t be able to refuse a sobriety test.

Galveston County Criminal District Attorney Jack Roady said his office would participate in a no-refusal weekend. This is the first time the program will be in place during the rally, when thousands of motorcyclists visit the island.

“Any time you add alcohol to that amount of vehicular traffic, the risks increase dramatically,” Roady said in a statement released Tuesday. “Police and prosecutors alike don’t need more business. We want everybody to enjoy the rally, but to do so responsibly.”

The no-refusal weekend begins Thursday, the first official day of the rally, and ends Sunday.
