Don't get arrested

If a trooper stops you and tells you that if you refuse testing he will have to arrest you, tell him you are not refusing -- you are claiming your legal right to take a breathalyzer test BEFORE being arrested or charged. The law says you have that right, although the Patrol and apparently the Governor think it's OK for you not to be advised of that right. If you are drunk, this may not help you, but if you blow a 0.00 the trooper will have no excuse to drive you across the county to appear before a magistrate -- or to have his buddy stop and hassle your spouse who's following the trooper -- because you have never been arrested in the first place.

Of course, a trooper can always swear you refused, even if you didn't; just like he can swear he smelled alcohol on your breath even if he didn't.
