If you are stopped by a law enforcement officer who believes you may be driving while intoxicated or impaired, you may be asked to take a Preliminary Breath Test (PBT). If you refuse a breathalyzer test, you may be charged with a civil infraction, which carries a fine plus Court costs. Whether you take the PBT or not, you still must take the evidentiary test required by the implied consent law.
If you or someone you know has refused a breathalyzer, contact the Draper Law Firm today.
“First time offenses of Michigan’s drunken driving law are now eligible for expungement under legislation signed Monday by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
The bills signed by the governor would allow individuals convicted of a first-time drunk driving offense to petition a court to set aside the conviction several years after sentencing. An estimated 200,000 non-repeat offenders are expected to be eligible for the program. ” – Link
