Question: Will not taking breathalyzer increase the charges at my court hearing in Van Nuys ?

Answer: To clarify, usually the cop will ask you to do a breathalizer on the field, known as the P.A.S. test, then a breathalizer (or blood test) at the station? If you refused the P.A.S. test, there is no penalty. If you refused a breath test or blood test after being arrested, they will charge an enhancement to the DUI charge. Contact me through if you would like to speak to me about your case in more detail as I regularly handle cases in Van Nuys Court. Whatever you decide to do, I highly recommend hiring a qualified DUI attorney to help you in your case.
