The Consequences of Refusal
An individual who is stopped and investigated for DUI may refuse any of the Utah DUI tests that may be administered by police officers. However, you should be aware that refusing to submit to certain tests may carry serious consequences and certainly does not mean that the officer may not arrest you. In the vast majority of cases, refusing a breath or chemical test will result in the automatic suspension of your driver’s license for 18 months. Additionally, you may be required to drive only with an interlock device for up to 3 years. Individuals who refuse DUI tests should be aware of the potential consequences before choosing to refuse a DUI test. Additionally, if you refuse to submit to DUI testing, you may be facing a jury that already presumes you are guilty based on your refusal alone. This may be adifficult bias to overcome. It is important to get a Utah DUI Attorney on your side who can help to manage the consequences.
