Do you have to take field sobriety tests?

There are certain things you are legally obligated to do if a Florida police officer pulls you over in a traffic stop. For instance, if the officer asks to see your driver's license and vehicle registration, you are obligated to meet the request. When you obtained your driver's license in this state, you also implicitly agreed to take chemical tests that a police officer may lawfully request. Should you refuse such a request, you will incur automatic administrative penalties, which often include a driver's license suspension.

Am I sunk if I blew over a .08 at the station?

Many people in the Tampa area, particularly if they are going through the legal system for the first time, may think that if they blew over the legal limit at the police station, then they may as well plead guilty to the ensuing DUI charge because there is proof that they were intoxicated.
