State troopers will be out in full force this Thanksgiving holiday.

THP will begin No Refusal enforcement starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday through midnight Sunday.

No Refusal allows law enforcement to seek search warrants for blood samples in cases involving impaired drivers.

Nine people died on Tennessee roadways during last year's Thanksgiving holiday. That's down from the 16 deaths in 2010. Almost half of those killed were alcohol-related deaths.
