Many people who are pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving are threatened with license suspension if they refuse the chemical testing of their blood or breath. This threat is a tactic used to pressure people into taking voluntary roadside tests, and it is coupled with many drivers who have a compulsion to cooperate with law enforcement in an attempt to be as cooperative as possible. What drivers need to know is that you must follow orders given by a peace officer, but you do not have to agree to voluntary requests, and a roadside test is voluntary which you can legally refuse.
Tests like these are rarely in a person’s best interests. In fact, in some cases, even sober people may not be able to pass these tests due to equipment malfunctions, improper calibrations, physical conditions that impact a person’s balance, or an incorrectly administered test. In short, at Decker & Jones, we know these tests are designed for a person to fail.
