Implied Consent Act
As a motorist in New Mexico, you are subject to the Implied Consent Act. If intoxicated driving is suspected, an officer has the right to test you for alcohol or drug consumption.
It is only required for an officer to prove that an offender is “impaired to the slightest degree” in order to pursue DUI charges. During any traffic stop, you have the right to refuse field sobriety tests, any admission to drug activity, or the voluntary search of your vehicle.
DUI is a serious crime in New Mexico. Because the charge stems from illegal drug use, it can be simultaneously charged along with:
- Possession with Intent to Distribute
- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
- Drug Trafficking
- And others
