Many people do not realize, but in the state of California, when applying for a driver's license there is form that must signed. Once signed, you have agreed as a resident of the state that you agree to comply with any chemical testing that is done in correlation to an investigation of driving under the influence. This includes everything from a blood test to a urine test and the breath test. If you were pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving and refused to take the breath test, your driver's license will automatically be suspended through the Department of Motor Vehicles. Due to the "implied consent" law, a suspect must participate in the breath test. This, however, has to be done after the arrest – not leading up to it. At our firm, we know the steps that can be taken to defend against both DUI charges and an accusation of chemical test refusal. Click here to read more aboutbreathalyzer test refusal defense.
