Things To Know Before You Blow
You are not legally required to disclose where you have been or what you had to drink to law enforcement officers.
You have the option of requesting to speak with a lawyer first before deciding to take a breathalyzer test.
If you refuse to take a breathalyzer test your license could be suspended, but it will also be suspended if you blow over the legal limit.
An officer needs a legal basis to search your vehicle. Consenting to a search waives your legal rights.
It is not mandatory to submit to field sobriety tests. Before doing so, you should ask to consult with your attorney.
The breath machine is not infallible. It cannot always produce reliable results.
You don’t have to enter a plea of “no contest” or “guilty” to get out of jail. If you were unfairly coerced into making such a plea, there are ways to reverse your conviction.
