Under Pennsylvania law, there is no requirement for either of you to be tested in the hospital. In fact, if they ask you, you have the right to deny testing for privacy purposes. In other words, they don't have the right to test you without your consent, and you have the right to deny the testing, so there is really nothing to worry about.

Good luck to you. I wish you and your baby all the best.

My 17 year old daughter was stopped in a school zone going
My 17 year old daughter was stopped in a school zone going 35, at least this is what she claims the officer told her when coming up to the window. We then received his traffic ticket in the mail and it stated 40 mph in a school 20 zone. We went to juvenile court and the judge scared her and said that she has to believe that she committed this traffic violation or plead not guilty so my daughter plead not guilty. so we were asked to come back, at this point, my daughter said she wanted to get it over with and just explain to her and plead guilty so when she explained it to the judge the judge said she would not let my daughter plead guilty because she possibly believed what she was telling her. The judge told me to call you guys to get free legal advice because now we have to go back to court on Wednesday for the trial hearing. I am not sure how to handle it, my daughter said that when the officer came to the window and said she was going 35mph she said that there were no school lights flashing at the time, he was hiding behind trees in the high school parking lot, she had just received her license and said that she was going 35 when she crossed over the school line in the 35 zone which is where he pulled her over. She said he walked up to her car laughing at her disrespectfully, ***** ***** a LaCrosse player for the school, never has gotten into a pinch of trouble and just got her license and was by herself. The next day, the same officer had pulled another NEW driver from the school over as well! How do I handle this on Wednesday? Any help or advice would be wonderful. Thank you … read more
