Being stopped for a suspected DUI is anything but ideal for any Washington State driver. A driver might be anxious about the stop in general and is worried about the potential consequences the person might face whether or not it is a traffic offence of a drunk driving charge. Furthermore, some drivers do not fully understand their rights during a DUI stop and are unaware of the penalties they might face if they do not comply with an officers request.
When a suspected drunk driver is stopped, officers will often ask the driver to submit to a blood alcohol test. The driver is then faced with the decision whether or not to take these tests. Some drivers are not aware that there is the implied consent when it comes to blood alcohol content testing. This means that when a driver obtains a driver's license they have consented in advance to submitting to a blood, breath or urine test when an officer requests the person to do so.
