No Right To Choose Method Of Determining BAC

If you live in Pennsylvania you live in one of many states that have an Implied Consent law. This means that if you are arrested on suspicion of DUI you automatically give consent to be tested for your BAC (Blood Alcohol Content). One man, who was arrested for DUI, gave consent to a breathalyzer or urine test, but did not give consent for a blood test. His license was suspended for refusing the test. It was ruled that Implied Consent is just that. Implied Consent. You do not have the right to choose which method you are tested with. This decision has been upheld and may see further appeals. Remember, never drive if you are under the influence of alcohol or any substance.
