PORTABLE BREATH TESTS - REFUSE REFUSE REFUSE

Portable Breath Tests (PBT) are used during traffic stops while investigating a potential DUI. The PBT invokes a portable breath test device that officers can use with minimal training. It’s typically done before the arrest, often within minutes of pulling you over. Officers will use the results of the PBT to consider whether to arrest you for DUI or not.
