Do I have to take an alcohol breathalyzer test if I am stopped?
There is a statute (law) in Michigan called Implied Consent Law which provides that you must take an alcohol test if asked by a police officer who suspects you were drinking and driving. If you refuse to take the test, the officer can get a court order to withdraw your blood and you will lose your license for 1 year because you refused the test. You will also get 6 points on your driver’s license.
