Highlight

When statutory language is clear and unambiguous, the letter of the statute cannot be disregarded under the pretext of pursuing its spirit.
Although for purposes of the criminal refusal statute a police officer must inform a driver that the driver may remedy a refusal of an onsite screening test by taking a subsequent chemical test, the statute does not require the driver to be informed of this remedy for purposes of administrative revocation of driving privileges for refusing an onsite test.
