Can You Refuse a Breath or Blood Test?

Understand the Implied Consent Laws in Kansas City

In the states of Kansas and Missouri, drivers will be held accountable for driving safely and according to the laws. If you have been pulled over on suspicion of DUI and a police officer has asked you to submit to a chemical test, you may refuse to submit to the test during the DUI stop.

If you refuse to submit to the test, however, you will be violating Implied Consent laws.

Under the Implied Consent laws, all drivers with a valid driver's license must submit to any type of chemical testing when subjected by a police officer or law enforcement official. Failing to submit to a test will result in an immediate suspension of a drivers' license.

Because prosecutors and police officers penalize DUI offenses harshly, prosecutors will try to use your refusal to submit to a chemical test as evidence against you. The state's prosecutors will try to suggest that your failure to take a test is an admission of guilt and that you were under the influence of alcohol or drugs while driving.
