As a driver in Idaho, you consent to allow police to test you for the presence of alcohol or drugs, if police have cause to suspect that you are impaired. If you are stopped by a police officer, they may ask you to take a breath test. In addition, the police may take a sample of your blood to determine if you have alcohol or drugs in your system.
If you refuse to take a breath or blood test, your refusal could result in a suspension of your driver’s license. In most cases the duration of your suspension will be even longer than if you took and failed a test.

If you have been arrested for DUI, or your driving privileges are in jeopardy because of a refusal to take a breath or blood test, contact an experienced DUI defense attorney at Minert Law Office.
