Fact #9:
If you are ill or have been in an accident in your DUI or DWI investigation and are taken to the hospital for treatment, you are required to give blood. But there must be a reason to take you to the hospital, not just because the Officer wants you to take a blood test. In California you have the right to choose between a breath or blood test. Always choose breath at the police station; not the hand held breath test in the street unless the Officer tells you that it is the chemical test and not a preliminary test. Now if the Officer suspects that you are under the influence of drugs, the Officer may also require you to take a urine or blood test in addition to the breath test, but the Officer must tell you so, and if that is the case, take it, but never request another test after you have taken the breath test at the police station even if one is offered.
