Refusal Advice from the best St. Louis DWI refusal lawyer
Should you blow?
As a St. Louis DWI Refusal Lawyer, I get asked this question on a regular basis and my answer is always “NO” unless you have not been drinking. It is very easy to blow .08 so don’t let the police officer trick you into blowing. The police officer wants you to blow so that should tell you something. For more details on why you should not blow call DWI lawyer Kevin J. Roach (636) 519-0085.
You have the right to refuse the Breathalyzer
After being arrested for DWI or DUI you will likely be advised that “Missouri's implied consent law requires you to submit to an alcohol and/or drug test when requested by a law enforcement officer. If you refuse to submit to the test, your driving privilege is revoked for one year.” This is true but what they don’t tell you is you can file a petition for review and stay order in the circuit court of the county of arrest which can stop the one year suspension of your license.
If I refuse the breathalyzer will I lose my license?
For first offense DWI (refusals) charges in many Missouri counties including St. Louis County and St. Charles County there are alternatives to losing your license. For instance, St. Louis County has a confession policy for first offense DWI refusals which will result in the driver’s license suspension being dismissed upon your completion of community service. Other counties have similar policies which can prevent you from losing your license.
