This bill requires a blood sample to be obtained from a driver involved in a motor vehicle accident resulting in the death of another person for the purpose of determining if the driver has alcohol or drugs in his or her system. This bill is to be known as "Michelle Sous' Law." Under this bill, drivers are deemed to have given consent to the taking of a blood sample just as they currently are deemed to have given consent to a breath test. In addition, the provisions of this bill extend this implied consent law to include blood testing to determine if the person was driving under the influence of drugs. A person who refuses to consent to the blood test would be subject to the same penalties as a person who is convicted of refusing a breath test in relation to a drunk driving charge under R.S.39:4-50.
