Highlight

A driver who has refused a chemical test but later changes his mind and consents to the test can cure the prior refusal.
Consent to a chemical test is not coerced and is not rendered involuntary merely by a law enforcement officer's reading of the implied consent advisory that accurately informs the arrestee of the consequences for refusal, including the criminal penalty, and presents the arrestee with a choice.
