Drivers who refused the alternative blood test put them in violation of Colorado’s “Express Consent” law, which triggers an automatic one-year license suspension and other sanctions. Colorado Springs DUI attorneys Mike Moran, Timothy Bussey, and others aggressively challenged the legality of CSPD’s policy change and won DUI dismissals and suppression of blood test evidence for affected clients!
