Federal DUI cases that involve a refusal to submit to an intoxication test carry the potential of extra federal DUI consequences.
Motorists on federally owned land are subject to a federal Implied Consent Law, meaning that any individual facing charges for driving while impaired must submit to a blood, urine, or breath test to determine blood alcohol content level (BAC).
