-How about a mandatory loss of your license for a year for refusing?
Also that when you refuse to take the test the worse a cop can do is impound your car. So he figured that paying $200 to get your car out of impound is better than jail time and a $3,000 fine.
-Try People V. Sugerman.
Now im sure they could do blood tests as well....but again, how could they forcefully stick a needle in your arm without your consent. Besides, by the time they actually got yu ready to have your blood drawn im betting you would have sobered up.
That is the case law allowing Officers to forcible take a blood draw. And yes, I have held people down while blood was taken from them. This is usually done after a refusal, so now you not only lose your license for a year, but you still get charged with the DUI.
I've learned a lot about paranoia by just following other people around...
