In Australia, police have the right to request a breath test from you. If you are in Australia and are asked to provide a breath test by police, you should comply immediately. Refusing a breath test could result in serious consequences, including fines, license suspension, a criminal record, and even imprisonment.
If you are found to be driving under the influence of alcohol, you will be charged with a DUI offense. If you also refuse to provide a breath test, you may be charged with wasting police time or resisting arrest.
Therefore, if you are asked to provide a breath test by police, you should comply immediately and avoid trying to evade or refuse the test.
