LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) –D.P.S. Trooper Greg Sanches says he thinks East Texans are finally getting the message when it comes to drinking and getting behind the wheel.

It was a pretty quiet weekend, out on the roads, this memorial day weekend.

Only three D.W.I.s were counted during Angelina County's 'No Refusal Weekend' - where officers can get an immediate warrant for blood when folks are stopped for suspected drinking and driving.

Trooper Sanches said that makes it a successful weekend since drivers seemed to be making safer decisions.
