Blood and Urine Tests

For the most part the police use the breathalyzer to test the drug or alcohol content in a person's blood, however, if your breath test shows that you are below the legal limit they may not be satisfied with the results and may request a blood and/or urine sample to check for drugs in your system

Generally, blood analysis is the most accurate way to determine a person’s blood drug or alcohol content. On the other hand, the least accurate is the urinalysis.

Should I agree to take a Blood or Urine Test?

The decision of whether or not to take a blood or urine test rests solely on the person at risk of being charged with a DUI. Simply put, the decision is weighing the likelihood of a high drug or alcohol content result against the consequences of refusing to take the tests.
If you refuse, your license will be automatically suspended and the length of the suspension will depend on whether it is your first or second refusal to submit these tests. A first refusal results in a 12 month suspension. On the flip-side, if you do take a chemical test and your blood alcohol level is over .08, this is evidence that will be used against you to prove that you were driving under the influence.
