Gator, I don't know about Florida, but here in Jersey the penalty for refusing the breathalizer is the same as it is for DWI.

Always have an unopened pint of Jack on the seat next to you. When the cop comes up to your window, break the seal so he/she can see and pound about half of it. They will have no idea whether or not you were drunk before or after the half pint you just swigged.

Note: This is just plain stupid do not try....

Don't refuse to blow. Let him know you will cooperate fully once you have spoken with you atty. Do not admit to anything.

As far as slowing down, I would not slow drastically. at or just below the speed limit. Then, make sure you pull over before you see the blue lights.

Illegal consumption is not as stiff a penalty as DUI. Sometimes you have to pick your battles.

I actually know a guy that rear ended a lady, drove home, parked in the backyard and made a drink. The lady gave his tag # to the police. When they showed up at his house, he said he panicked and went home to call his brother (an atty). He told the cops his brother said to have a drink to calm down and cooperate fully with the police when they showed up. His charges for careless driving and leaving the scene were much less than a DUI would have been.
