Implied Consent Law- Can I Refuse To Take A Test When Pulled Over?

On Behalf of | Aug 24, 2021 | Firm News

In general, we have the right to not incriminate ourselves, to not provide information to law enforcement unless we choose to. This rule does not always apply when we are in our vehicles. There is something called the Implied Consent Law, which requires anyone with a driver’s license to submit to testing to see if they are over the alcohol limit if a police officer believes they are under the influence. The penalties for refusing to take a test are almost always worse than they are for failing it, refusing the test is a crime. It sounds odd, but, when a police officer asks you to decide on taking a test, you really do not have a choice, you will be punished if you do not take it. If you are asked to take a test, it is an offer you usually cannot refuse, you are better off taking your chances taking it.
