Do you remember when you got your license? Do you recall signing a bunch of papers at the time? Did you actually read all of them?

This agreement is known as “implied consent.” Some people are unaware that they signed paperwork of this nature and mistakenly believe they are better off declining a chemical test when accused of drunk driving.

If you have been pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving anywhere in Washington State, you face much more severe penalties for violating the implied consent contract than you do for drunk driving.
