Avoid a DWI with The DWI Dude

April 11, 2016

This week, I was featured on Fox News in San Antonio to speak on the no refusal weekend happening this week during fiesta.

No Refusal is a policy, it is NOT a law. Your constitutional rights are not suspended and you have the right to refuse many of the tests. If the police do not have a warrant for a blood draw, they can not take one without your consent.

Some of the questions that were asked that put the host and crew in shock!

If you take the breath test and show under .08, can you still be arrested? YES!

The host was given the field sobriety "gymnastics test" before the interview, and she failed, even thought she had not consumed any alcohol. That's because the walk-and-turn test, and balance on one leg test are designed for failure, not to determine alcohol content.

It's also important to remember, if an officer believes you are under the influence, and you blow a 0.000, it's very likely you will be taken for futher investigation into whether you are under the influence of any drugs. These tests are even more subjective and it can be easier to catch a case if you have ANY drugs in your system, even if they are not influencing your behavior at the time.

This is why it's so important for you to refuse the tests! One No-Refsual policy you can stick to is do not refuse to exercise your constitutional rights!
