If I am stopped for DUI, should I take a breath test?

This is a difficult question to answer. On one hand, refusing to take the test will result in a six-month or more suspension of your driving privileges, as Illinois law states that every motorist gives implied consent to such a test, when driving on the roads, and refusing to do so after a stop is a violation of that implied consent. Yet, submitting to the test can provide incriminating evidence against you in a DUI prosecution. Therefore, the answer depends on whether you are willing to risk that suspension of driving privileges in exchange for not providing potentially incriminating evidence against yourself.
