Right, if that cop isn't specifically looking to bust drunk drivers then chances are he's not going to want the pain in the arse of getting a warrant or bringing you in for a blood test.

The people on here saying go ahead and blow are retarded. Might as well take your chances by not talking or going for the blood test than basically giving yourself a DUI.

re: Pros and Cons of refusing the breathalyzer on a DUI stop


why should I blow if I'm sober?

I thought it was innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around.

I shouldn't have to blow and prove my innocence.

If you were truly sober and didn't want to lose your license, you either blow or you refuse and then fight it in court.

I'm not really a fan of turning over your right to refuse just because you're sober, but if you are concerned with losing your license and you're sober, your only choice is to blow or fight it.

I meant if you've been drinking in my response anyway. If you've been stopped for DUI and you've been drinking, you're caught. You're gonna leave with something unless you're reeeeaallyy lucky (and sometimes we do get lucky), so its in your best interest to do the lesser of the two evils which is just get a suspended license rather than a full blown DUI.

No offense but I took it as fairly obvious the OP implies if you've been drinking...

Except the testimony of the officers and results of the field sobriety tests...which nobody passes.
FSTs are also completely voluntary with no penalty for refusing.

Most people are stupid and end up telling the cop they've only had a few drinks or end up doing the other tests they have prior to the breathlyzer in the hopes they can fool the cop they are sober. I mean if you're doing the alphabet or walking in some kind of line for the cop do you think he'll just stop at that if you pass one test? frick no.

In GA, there is something called implied consent. Basically you sign it when you get a license and it says you will comply with a breath test if asked and if not your license is gone for a year. Driving is a privilege, not a right.

there's really not one bit of logic behind doing it if you have been drinking. unless you want to make things easy for the cop and make sure you end up with a DUI.

I'm a criminal defense attorney in Tennessee. We have a new forced blood draw law if there is an injury to another person (not the defendant).

Because you don't want to lose your license.

It is.

You don't.

When you drive in Louisiana you have consented to submit to BAC breath tests. If you refuse you are subject to civil, not criminal, penalties.

Shit, even if you did well enough on a FST the cop can just nitpick one little thing.
