What Can You Do After Refusing A Breath Test?
Being pulled over and asked to submit to a Breathalyzer can be confusing and stressful. You may not have ever thought you would be in such a situation and you may have panicked and refused to submit to the breath test.
Whether you made a conscious or a spontaneous choice to refuse to take a Breathalyzer, you now have to build a case that can help you deal with the consequences of having refused the test.
Depending on your record, you could be facing a lifetime loss of your driving privileges if you have refused to take a breath test.
Even if you have never been convicted of OUI/DUI, you will be facing a possible six-month suspension of your driver’s license. A second offense carries a three-year driver’s license suspension.
These Penalties Are Very Serious
The penalties for refusing a breath test are so severe because the state wants to make the choice of refusing so unattractive that everyone complies. With such severe penalties on the books, you have little choice but to put up the strongest fight you can against these charges.
