Imbert is proposing legislation for a problem created by successive governments.
Drivers who are suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and refuse to allow a breathalyser test could be jailed, Transport Minister Colm Imbert said yesterday.

Imbert said the Bill would create an offence of driving or attempting to drive or being charge of a motor vehicle while the concentration of alcohol in the blood exceeds a prescribed limit.
Imbert said the legislation also empowered the police to require persons involved in an accident to provide a specimen of breath for testing at the scene of the accident or at a police station.
Works and Transport Minister Colm Imbert has defended the integrity of the bidding selection for the Government's $15 billion rapid railway project but is mindful of the perception some may have about the process if the contract is awarded to the consortium that includes Bombardier Transportation.
The Prime Minister is not involved in the evaluation of the tenders nor is he involved in the negotiations nor will I be involved in the evaluation of the tenders, Imbert said in response to a question from the Express about the integrity of the bidding selection during yesterday's post-Cabinet news conference at Whitehall.
Imbert said the Cabinet Ministers have no role in the selection of a preferred bidder and was only involved in establishing the policy that value for money will be the determining factor in the final contract.
Imbert said the end result will be a merit list of three bidders and Nidco will then begin negotiations with the one assessed to be the strongest to try to get a fair and reasonable price for that consortium.
Imbert said the process is called the Qualification Based Assessment (QBA), which is being used more and more in countries like the United States for complicated projects such as nuclear power plant, railway systems and airport construction.
