Drunk Driving – To Blow or Not Blow? That is the question
When a person is stopped for drunk driving he or she will always have to decide whether to submit to the breath test. If you refuse the breath test, your drivers license will be suspended as a result of your refusal. If you blow and your reading is .08 or above, it is legal proof of your guilt.
So how much does it take to get to a .08? Every person is different. However, after handling drunk driving cases since 1976, I have never has a client who has had at least three drinks in an evening and blew under .08. So that should be a good guideline if you ever have to decide whether to blow or not blow.
