As an Ohio citizen, it is important to know what rights you have and when to exercise them. However, you should understand that certain rights have a number of associated risks that could land you into more trouble if the surrounding circumstances are not in your favor.
One right that is often questioned is the right to refuse a breathalyzer test if a police officer pulls you over and suspects you of driving under the influence (DUI). While you do have the right to do so, you risk making the potential conviction even worse for yourself. Before you refuse the officer’s request, it is important to understand the potential outcomes that could happen from this decision.
