Implied Consent Laws

When you drive on the state’s roads, by action of the law, or by having a state driver’s license, you’ve given your implied consent to be subject to driving while intoxicated (DWI) checkpoints and chemical testing. Your refusal to submit to testing could result in serious penalties.

  • If you have a state driver’s license, you’ve agreed to be tested for alcohol when required by law enforcement because the driver’s license forms include permission to be tested.
  • By driving in public areas it’s been deemed that you agree to chemical tests for DWI.
  • Driving is considered a privilege, not a right, in the state. There are rules and obligations for drivers, including the requirement for chemical testing for DWI when requested by law enforcement.
  • If pulled over, a police officer suspecting you may be intoxicated may ask you to take a chemical test to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC) level.
  • This testing includes blood, breath or urine tests.
  • A refusal to submit to a test will lead to an arrest, possible jail time, a lengthy license suspension and fines.
