DUI Sobriety Test Defense
If you are arrested for drunk driving, you will also be asked to submit to a chemical test — checking for the alcohol or drug content in your breath, blood or urine.
Pulled Over at a DUI/DWI Checkpoint?
The state of Georgia expects you to submit to these tests, using a principle called implied consent. This means that motorists tacitly agree to submit to testing when they are issued their licenses. The penalty for refusing to be tested is administrative suspension of your license — even if you are not convicted on the separate DUI charge.
Do Not Delay Seeking Legal Representation
From the moment you refuse the test, or submit to the test and register higher than the legal limit, you have 10 days before you lose your license. That is why it’s very important to hire a good Warner Robins DUI sobriety test defense attorney immediately after being arrested. It’s much easier to prevent a suspension than it is to undo one.
Snatching Your Life Back From the DUI Brink
Once you are arrested, your life changes in many ways. Many people lose their license, have trouble getting to work and lose their jobs. Marriages and other relationships are put under great strain. You start thinking seriously about jail time.
