What you must know about refusing a breath test

You always have a right to refuse a breath test if you are pulled over for a DUI. However, some people throw this information around as if refusing will get you out of the whole thing without any penalty, and this is not the case. If you have been told never to take breath tests, there are a few things that you should know about exactly what this refusal is going to mean.

How does alcohol impact you as you continue drink?

The reason that the legal limit for drinking as been set at a blood alcohol concentration of .08 is that alcohol impacts you differently as your BAC climbs. This does not mean that you won't feel the impact at all if it's below .08, however. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, relaxation, loss of judgement and a slight impairment of your ability to follow moving objects can start at just .02.
