No Refusals

New studies have concluded that many people are being forced to submit to blood or urine testing for alcohol.  Warrants are being signed by judges ordering tests for DUI suspects who refuse to take the breath test.  It's almost as if the 4th amendment no longer exists as a suspect's right against self-incrimination is clearly being violated.  You have a statutory right to refuse testing in Georgia but there are some exceptions.  In vehicular homicide or serious injury by vehicle cases, you can be forced to submit to testing.  But, one must know that refusing to submit to testing has serious consequences in Georgia.  Refusing can result in having your driver's license suspended for one year.
