After drinking, you enter your vehicle and attempt to drive. You commit a traffic violation, and an officer pulls you over and requests your participation in a field sobriety test. Worried they won’t pass the test without a DUI charge, many adults choose to refuse a breathalyzer.
Unfortunately, Alabama operates under implied consent when dealing with intoxicated drivers. Refusing to blow into a breathalyzer to determine your level of sobriety comes with serious charges – leaving you with the possibility of a DUI conviction and penalties for not submitting to a chemical test.
