Breath test refusal can land you behind bars

In Alberta, police have the right to stop motorists whom they believe may be impaired. If they then have reason to suspect the driver of consuming alcohol or using drugs within three hours of taking control of a vehicle, they can order the suspect to submit to a breath test. Furthermore, if for any reason a breath test cannot be executed, a urine or blood test done by suitably qualified individuals may be ordered. Breath test refusal can have severe consequences.

The man was arrested in 2014 after a car accident and was hit with drunk driving charges by police. However, the charges were dropped in a recent trial. Here in Alberta, requirements for drunk driving charges under the law can influence cases in a similar way.
