What Is Michigan’s Implied Consent Law?
Under Michigan’s implied consent law, all drivers are presumed to have given their consent to chemical testing. Chemical testing includes a urine test, a breath test or a blood alcohol content (BAC) test. If you refuse to take a chemical test, six points will be added to your driving record and your license will automatically be suspended.
Many people are not aware of the consequences of a test refusal. If you have been pulled over for drunk driving, it is the police officer’s responsibility to advise or warn you of the requirements under implied consent.
Our attorneys will aggressively advocate on your behalf if you believe that you were not given a clear and unequivocal implied consent warning by the police. We will work with you so that we know every detail of your case. You do not deserve to be punished because a police officer gave you an improper implied consent warning.
