Should You “Blow” After Being Pulled Over?

As part of their DWI investigation the Police will ask you to take a Breath or Blood test. You have the right to refuse taking a Breath or Blood alcohol concentration test.

Most of us who are experienced DWI Attorneys agree that the above tests are not completely accurate and therefore should not be taken. According to most experts of the tests, the blood test is the most accurate, but it is too time consuming for police officers to use. The Breath test is the easiest for the officer, because the machine is available and already housed at the police station. You need to know that if you refuse to take these tests offered by the Police, that refusal can be used as evidence of guilt. Additionally your license will be suspended for 180 days up to 2 years depending on your driving history. If you refuse the tests, you will almost certainly be placed under arrest. However, you will not have given the police the one piece of definitive proof they look for in order to obtain a conviction in your case.

If you have been been arrested for driving while intoxicated or have any questions, contact Dallas DWI lawyer Mark T. Lassiter today.
