Many drivers can attest to the fact that being stopped by a police officer makes them a bit nervous. Because there are many potential situations that an officer believes may need attention, a driver may not always know what the issue may be. Some drivers may be surprised when an officer suspects them of being under the influence, and a Breathalyzer test could potentially be requested.
Some parties in Missouri may wish to refuse to take a breath test. However, this refusal could result in immediate punishments, such as driver's license suspension. Some drivers may not wish to submit to such a test because they may believe that it could potentially give the authorities evidence against them in a suspected DWI situation.
