This new Texas law allows the police to obtain a blood draw without a search warrant if you are involved in a traffic accident under three have a child in the car, you have previous DUI convictions or if someone is injured in a crash.

Needless to say, if you are looking for stories of a state reducing personal liberties and attacking the constitution, all you need to do is look to Texas. But my liberal views aside....if this saves one life, I am OK with it (grimace), as concerned as I am to give law enforcement more power. Not only power, but police will be taking the blood draws themselves.....this is a very controversial new law that is going to be headed to the Texas Supreme Court like a bullet.
The most interesting part of this new law? Texas' laws on the books currently which are extremely liberal on (loaded) gun possession and open containers in vehicles......
