The Fifth Amendment Still Exists Even When You Get Pulled Over for DUI
So please remember that an officer cannot force you to testify against yourself even if you are driving a car.
Now, this is different from whether the take the breathalyzer test, which I will discuss in more detail in another post. The MVA will take administrative action against you if you refuse to take this test and the officer must advise you of this before you make any decision. At this point, you have the right to consult an attorney and you should attempt to do so. You can call our office anytime 410-541-6DUI (6384).
