Understanding the Chemical Testing Process
An alcohol blood test may also be used to measure exactly how much alcohol
was in the driver's system. After only minutes of consuming an alcoholic
drink, the ethanol has already made its way to the blood stream and been
absorbed. At about an hour after drinking, the highest reading will be reached.
If you have been asked to submit to a blood test, the police cannot force
you if you refuse. However, under implied consent law, you could be penalized
for your refusal. If you do choose to take the test, a medical professional
will be in charge of administering the test. After placing an elastic
band around your upper arm, a needle will be placed into a vein in your
arm. After collecting enough blood in a tube, it is sent to a lab where
it is tested for ethanol.
