Often times as an experienced New York DWI Attorney, I am asked what can happen if you refuse a breathalyzer and what the DMV can do in retaliation.
- You will be given a summon for a refusal in the outer counties of NYC.
- In NYC you will be prosecuted and given a hearing for a refusal at the DMV which is called a Chemical Test Refusal.
- If you have no other driving suspensions, the administrative law judge will allow you to drive.
- This charge is an entire different case from your DWI, and will be handled separately.
