Chemical Test Refusal Giving You a Fighting Chance

Chemical Test Refusal Defense in RI

Aggressive Rhode Island DUI Lawyer

In DUI arrests, chemical tests are used to determine if a driver's Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) exceeds the legal limit, which is 0.08%. Many individuals may think they are doing themselves a favor when they refuse to take a chemical test when pulled over for a DUI. Because of Rhode Island's "implied consent" laws, refusing to take a chemical test is illegal and can lead to serious consequences. The penalties for refusing to take a chemical test can include driver's license suspension, community service, and expensive fines.
