Implied Consent Attorneys in Delaware & Chester County
Vigorously Defending People Accused of Breath Test Refusal
You may not have known it at the time, but when you applied for a driver’s license in Pennsylvania, you implicitly gave your consent to submit to a blood alcohol test should you be stopped by the police on suspicion of drunk driving. If you refuse to provide a breath, blood or urine sample, you could lose your license for up to a year and you could be sentenced to three days in jail.
It is important to distinguish between the two types of breath testing devices used in Pennsylvania. Police often use a handheld portable breath test device at the side of the road, but you are under no obligation whatsoever to submit to this test. However, when you are taken to the police station, you will be asked to take a Breathalyzer, urine or blood test. If you refuse this test, you are in violation of Pennsylvania’s implied consent law.
Defense of a breath test refusal case presents many challenges. Nevertheless, in your case there may be one or more viable defenses available. You should speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
