Q: Is refusing to take a breath/urine/blood test a crime?

A: Yes, but only if you have one prior refusal. Refusing to provide a breath/urine/blood test can result in other penalties related to your driver’s license. A first time refusal will result in a 12 month suspension and an 18 month suspension for each subsequent refusal. Remember, it is one thing to exercise your right to politely refuse, it another to create a scene and potentially risk additional charges.
