Drivers who refuse the requirements and directions for a breath alcohol test or analysis commit a serious crime. Drink driving - driving while impaired by alcohol – is a significant issue for safety and contributes substantially to the burden of road crashes and road trauma. A refusal of a breath test or analysis is an act of non-compliance that challenges the safe operation of a road transport system, and is also an act of insubordination to the lawful regulation of travel within a road transport system.

 

Refusal of the requirements and directions for a breath test or analysis can be explicit, or can be indicated by actions that seek to delay or subvert the process such as attempting to alter the blood alcohol concentration (BAC).

 

A driver’s refusal f the requirements and directions for a breath test or analysis also poses the most serious confrontation to the policing tactic of random breath testing.

 

This paper reviews the law in Australian jurisdictions that pertain to drivers who refuse the requirements and directions for a breath alcohol test or analysis.  A refusal is considered to be a major offence in road transport law, and if a driver is found guilty of a refusal offence it renders that person to significant penalties in terms of fines, drivers licence suspensions and disqualifications, and terms of imprisonment.
