Blow over the Legal Limit? Refuse to Blow?
Administrative Sanctions: Driver license suspension and revocation; SATOP and SR-22.

Separate and apart from the criminal charges that may arise out of being arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or DUI (Driving under the Influence), a person arrested in Missouri for DWI or DUI also may be processed administratively by the Missouri Department of Revenue Driver License Bureau.

A person arrested for driving with a blood alcohol content of .08% or higher is subject to the imposition of administrative sanctions in addition to criminal penalties. Minors arrested or stopped with .020% or more blood alcohol content also are subject to administrative sanctions (§302.500-§302.540).
