Breathalyzer Tests

Posted by attorney Emanuel Mouganis

If you are pulled over by police for suspicion of driving under the influence (DWI), you will likely be asked to take a breathalyzer test. This is a test of your blood alcohol content (BAC) and is used in the court of law establish your level of intoxication. You do not strictly have to consent to a breathalyzer test in most situations, but failure to do so may result in civil penalties that may be as bad as or worse than what you are facing for DWI.
