  1. Everybody please notice this:
    the Off Duty Sheriff Refused to take Any Tests. If you are in a similar situation, Refuse any tests and simply repeat, “I want a lawyer”, until you get one.
    It Must be the right thing to do if the Authorities Themselves do it.
    It is Your Right.

  2. If you fail to take the test, your license automatically gets suspended for a certain amount of years.
