What are the different drug and alcohol moving violations?

Should I refuse a breath test?

The answer to the question of whether or not you should submit to a breath blood alcohol content test during a New York traffic or boating stop is, unfortunately, very difficult to answer with any certainty. Your best course of action would probably depend on any number of details of the circumstances of your incident.

Though law enforcement officers work to keep New York residents safe, they are not perfect.
