What Factors Will Lead To A Driver’s License Suspension?
Factors That Will Lead To The Driver’s License Suspension
In order to give someone a suspension, there needs to be three things. One, there needs to be an initial reason for the police officer to be talking to you. They can make up any little tiny infraction, such as you didn’t use your turn signal changing lanes, anything like that.
Step two, the officers need probable cause to ask you to be taking one of the standardized field sobriety tests. You shouldn’t be asked to take a DUI test if you just blow a stop sign if there are no other indicators that you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. So, there has to be, one, reason to pull you over; two, there has to be a reason for him to ask you to take the test, which is usually bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, odor of alcohol or it could be the odor of cannabis.
The third thing that has to happen, is that you get to the point where you either take the test and you blow over the legal limit or you refuse all testing. That’s still going to trigger the statutory summary suspension for an entire year.
Any time you refuse a breath test, chances are police are going to arrest you. It is easier for them to arrest you rather than take the chance that if they let you go, you may go down the road and kill someone. The officer is always going to err on the side of caution. He is going to give you a statutory summary suspension and a DUI ticket. However, again, in Illinois, you wouldn’t get a conviction on your first offense unless it was something really heinous. You will more than likely get court supervision.
