Oregon Drunk Driving Penalties

Just like in majority of other states, certain Oregon drunk driving penalties apply not only when you get convicted under dui charges but also when you refuse to take the field sobriety test. When you refuse to take the test at the time of dui stop, you attract additional penalties, which remain applicable even if all charges against you get dismissed in the court room. As per the Implied Consent Law applicable in the state of Oregon, the refusal generally results in an immediately license suspension followed by a court hearing, where the exact period of license suspension is determined if you are found to be at fault.
