§ 302. Tests to determine concentration of intoxicants--Implied consent
A. Any person who operates an aircraft within this state shall be deemed to have given consent to a test or tests of such person's blood or breath, for the purpose of determining the alcohol concentration as defined in Section 5 of this act,1 and such person's blood, saliva or urine for determining the presence and concentration of any other intoxicant therein as defined in Section 1 of this act,2 if arrested for any offense arising out of acts alleged to have been committed while the person was operating an aircraft within this state while the person was under the influence of an intoxicant. The test shall be administered by or at the direction of a law enforcement officer after having arrested such person and having reasonable grounds to believe that such person was operating an aircraft within this state while under the influence of an intoxicant.
B. The law enforcement agency by which the arresting officer is employed may designate, in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Board of Tests for Alcohol and Drug Influence, hereinafter referred to as the Board, whether blood or breath is to be tested for the alcohol concentration thereof, and whether blood, saliva or urine is to be tested for the presence and concentration of any other intoxicant therein. In the event the law enforcement agency does not designate the test to be administered, breath shall be the substance tested for alcohol concentration. Blood may also be tested to determine the alcohol concentration thereof in the event that breath cannot be tested to determine the alcohol concentration thereof because of the lack of an approved device or qualified person to administer a breath test or because such breath test for any other reason cannot be administered in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Board. In the event the law enforcement agency does not designate the test to be administered, blood, saliva or urine shall be the substance tested for the presence and concentration of any other intoxicant or the combination of alcohol and any other intoxicant therein.
C. In the event the person is incapable of submitting to and successfully completing, by reason of illness or injury or other physical disability, the test to be administered, an alternate test may be administered in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Board.
D. Any person who is unconscious or otherwise incapable of refusing to submit to a test of such person's blood or breath to determine the alcohol concentration thereof, or to a test of such person's blood, saliva or urine to determine the presence and concentration of any other intoxicant therein, shall be deemed not to have withdrawn the consent provided by subsection A of this section, and such test may be administered as provided herein.
E. In addition to any test designated by the arresting officer, the arrested person may also designate any additional test to be administered to determine the concentration of alcohol, any other intoxicant or the combination of alcohol and any other intoxicant. The cost of such additional test shall be at the expense of the arrested person.
A sufficient quantity of any specimen obtained at the designation of the arrested person shall be available to the law enforcement agency employing the arresting officer. Such specimens shall be treated in accordance with the same rules and regulations applicable to the specimens obtained by an arresting officer.
