Refusals in Forsyth County and Dawson County

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jun 28, 2010 | 0 Comments

I am told several times a week that "I refused the breath test because I was always told never to do that."  When asked by whom the client was told, the answer is never that an attorney told them.  In fact, refusing the breath or blood test can have additional licensing consequences that would not have occurred had a breath test been taken. Sometimes it is in the best interest for someone to refuse the breath test; however, seek the advice of a qualified attorney before ever being placed in that situation.  Refusing to submit to testing can result in a  one year suspension of your driver's license.  If you take a test and fail it, the driver's license suspension can be as little as 120 days with a permit to drive.  There is no permit in the event of a refusal.
