Should I ‘blow’ if I’m arrested for DUI?

Most of my clients answer a resounding NO after their first arrest for DUI. Here's why…

 

Refusing the breath/alcohol test and roadside sobriety exam will expose you to harsher penalties….if you are convicted. In some states it's a misdemeanor to refuse to blow.

 

On the other hand, the state can, and will, use your breath and the video to convict you. By submitting to a breath test and a roadside sobriety examination you are providing evidence which will be used to convict you.

 

The state cannot convict you without evidence. The breath results and the video are almost always enough to convict you.
