Getting behind the wheel of a car after you have consumed alcohol can lead to an arrest. The charge of drunk driving is a serious one, and it can claim many of your liberties and cost you thousands and thousands of dollars. From license suspension to increased insurance costs, and a criminal record to court fees and jail time, there are simply far too many consequences to a DUI.
But sometimes people make mistakes -- good people who have never made a mistake before. Unfortunately, the law doesn't care if you haven't made a mistake before. The violation you committed can still lead to punishment. Specific to DUIs, if you think that refusing to take a breath test will get you off the hook, then you are wrong. In Florida, refusing a breath test actually result in its own criminal charge.
