You should never take a breathalyzer or field sobriety test. Ever. Even if you're not drunk or haven't even had a drink. Why? Because that's your right as a citizen of the US.
I agree and many people here don't realize just one drink could get them a dui. Everyone has driven after a drink or two whether they admit it or not and do not go by the number of drinks in the number of minutes rule either. One drink even after 90 minutes can still get a dui no matter what they say.
Do not take any tests. Tell the officer you have a back/neck problem and cannot get out of the car. If it is a car accident the ambulance will come and transport you. At the hospital they will not take your blood for a back/neck problem and if they ask refuse to let them. It is your right.
If it involves a car accident always state you swerved to avoid an animal such as a deer, fox, dog, etc.
If for some crazy reason you took a breathalyzer and failed remember to get a lawyer and make sure the officer was qualified to give it and the machine has been recently calibrated.
Most cops will give a teenager or younger driver involved in an accident (no injuries or death) due to drunk driving the option to go to the hospital. This is a good thing because just for them to explain to the parents what happened will be enough punishment.
This will keep their record clean and hopefully they learned from their mistake. And if their car is totaled the police know they have already paid for their mistake.
Usually they are asked "did you swerve to avoid a deer or an animal ....right? Shake head up and down......okay and now you want to go to the hospital?.....right?.....shake head up and down."
The crazy part is some people just don't get the hint.
Cops will give you a break, take their lead and don't screw with them or else you get what you deserve.
