The po po will be lurking and preying on innocent and responsible drinkers this weekend… using everything they can to get people pulled over to breathe into the breathalyzer and to do field sobriety tests. You need to know that there is no penalty for refusing the field sobriety tests. However, there is a penalty for refusing the breath test. If you refuse the breath test, it can be appealed and a good attorney can get you driving privileges back under a suspension for refusing the breath test. The po po will not tell you that.
The United States Supreme Court has indicated that police officers can lie and deceive people to get them to confess and produce incriminating evidence. If you are pulled over and accused of a DUI, do not lie to the police officer, just remain silent. Tell them ‘officer, before I say or do anything, I want to talk to a lawyer.’ Give the police officer your drivers license and get out of the car. You must control your fear.
Listen to Steve’s interview with Bill Cunningham (from earlier today) by clicking here and find out why it’s better to refuse the breath test than to take it.
