There are major consequences for refusing a breath test

As time goes on and the general public becomes more educated about the various ways that breath testing for alcohol can lead to inaccurate charges and penalties, more people are considering what it would mean to refuse to take a test if pulled over. While it might be tempting to stand on facts like the tendency of breath testers to pick up substances other than alcohol, the fact is that refusing a test is not a good idea. While the laws vary a bit from state to state, implied consent statutes set up hefty penalties for those who refuse them, and many of them allow for the use of your refusal in a case against you.
