Drunk-Driving Test Refusals Might Have Bigger Consequences

Drunk driving might come with bigger repercussions if a bill filed Monday goes through the Florida Legislature.A Republican senator is seeking to toughen laws for drivers who refuse to take DUI tests.Senate Rules Chairman David Simmons, from Altamonte Springs, filed a bill that targets drivers who refuse breath, blood or urine tests.Currently, people could have their driver's license suspended for refusing a DUI test. Under Simmons’ bill, first-time refusals could lead to fines of at least $500 and six-months probation.And people who refuse tests after having already been suspended could be charged with first-degree misdemeanors, and get breathalyzers installed in their vehicles for a year.
