Question: What happens if you refuse to take a breathalyzer test for a DUI in Van Nuys, CA?

Answer: There is an implied consent law in CA that basically says if officer believes you are under the influence and you refuse a breath or blood test, they can arrest you and the prosecutor can add an enhancement charge filed against you increasing the potential penalty including a 1 year license suspension for a first DUI refusal conviction. You should speak to a DUI defense attorney regarding your case as soon as possible. I can be reached at 818-336-1DUI to discuss further. There are often defenses to DUI refusal cases.
