The police pulled over my friend who was driving behind me. Seeing the event I pulled over too. A police officer approached my car and did the normal routine. Not knowing what to do I took the field tests and failed. My friend was pulled over for reckless driving and driving too close. I was only pulled over for driving too close (to the car in front of me).
In the processing room the arresting officer read the implied consent form, and I did my best to try to pay attention, but I failed to grasp exactly what it was about. After he finished reading he asked my friend and I if we would take it. Not really knowing what to do and not really understanding we refused. I did not understand the consequnces of refusing at the time when I refused
Should I request a DMV hearing.Some one also told me that as long as I do the Diversion, my suspension will only be for 90 days, regardless of my refusal to take the breath test. Is this true?
