Michigan House Approves Bill To Allow Minors To Refuse Breathalyzer Tests

Another bill in Lansing would allow minors to refuse requests by police to submit to breathalyzers.

It would mean officers wouldn’t be allowed to measure the person’s blood alcohol level without their consent or a judge-signed court order.

The bill would also get rid of tickets, fines and the two points tacked onto a minor’s driving record for refusing.

They can still be arrested if an officer has probable cause they were driving drunk.

The bill passed the House and now heads to the Senate.
