Highlight

If an arrestee makes any affirmative mention of a need for an attorney before deciding whether to submit to chemical testing, law enforcement personnel must assume the arrestee is requesting an opportunity to consult with an attorney and must allow a reasonable opportunity to do so.
A failure to provide a reasonable opportunity to consult with counsel after the arrestee requests as much disallows the Department from revoking the arrestee's driver's license because of the arrestee's refusal to submit to chemical testing.
