The Right to Refuse

When you are accused of operating your vehicle under the influence of alcohol it is likely you will be asked to submit yourself to a test in some form for the purpose of estimating your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Typically this will consist of a breathalyzer test, field sobriety test, or blood test. It is important you recognize you have a right to refuse these tests.

If you or someone you love has been charged with driving while intoxicated, it is important you seek the assistance of an experienced legal professional who will help you defend your rights and freedoms.

Can You Refuse a Sobriety Test?

If you are pulled over when driving and are asked to take a breathalyzer test or field sobriety test it is important you take note of the following:

  • If you are asked to take a field sobriety test and you are over the legal drinking age and if you are not on parole then you have the right to refuse the voluntary test.
  • There are no penalties for refusing to take a field sobriety test.
  • You have a right to refuse to submit yourself to a breathalyzer test, but there may be consequences.
