I understand there are 3 ways to measure your blood alcohol content: blood test, urine test and breathalyzer. If stopped by the police, what should I know in order to make an intelligent choice about which blood alcohol test I should take?
It is not your option which type of test to take pursuant to Massachusetts law. The test offered by the police is the breath test, unless you have been involved in an accident and go to the hospital then it will be a blood test. You can at your own expense request a comparison blood test. This would need to be done upon your release from the police station. Just as an FYI, they can also measure your alcohol level through a hair follicle test.
