Under California law, a person suspected of DUI (driving under the influence) has the legal right to refuse a field sobriety test. However, if they are suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs they legally must agree to a blood test due to California’s “Implied Consent Law”. Otherwise, refusal to submit to a blood test may result in an automatic license suspension.
A person faces DUI anytime they have a BAC (blood alcohol content) of 0.08% or higher. Whether a person is charged with a 1st DUI offense or higher they should seek legal advice and guidance immediately. A professional Rancho Cucamonga DUI attorney can help explain a person’s legal rights and what strategies may be presented in the attempt to avoid a conviction and DUI penalties.
