A frequently asked question we get at our firm is “what if I refused to blow?” in Salem, Oregon? In Oregon, there is what is called an “implied consent law”. This means that when you are driving a car in Oregon, you have implied that you will consent to a breath, blood, or urine test if asked by a police officer. The maximum penalties for refusing to blow in Salem, Oregon is a fine. A police officer can also then request a warrant for a blood or urine test. In addition, the DMV can also suspend your license anywhere from 90 days to several years after receiving notice that you have refused to “blow”. It is important to remember that whatever the DMV decides is completely separate from what the criminal court decides about the incident. Essentially, you will have two separate entities that will have an effect on your driving privileges after refusing to blow in Salem, Oregon when you are arrested for a DUI.
