When To Challenge DUI/DWAI Tests
In many cases, prosecutors rely heavily on evidence of your blood alcohol content, or BAC, to prove that you were intoxicated while driving. This evidence may come from a breath or blood test at the time of your traffic stop, or from a test after you are arrested.
If you submitted to a blood alcohol test during or after a DUI stop and tested at .08 or higher, do not despair — your life, and your case, is not over. At Martin & Reed, LLC, our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to ensure that those results are accurate, constitutional and fair. Sometimes it is possible to get these tests thrown out of evidence, greatly increasing your chances of success in your case.
Casting Doubt On Breath And Blood Tests
Many people believe that breath and blood tests are the best indicators of whether someone is intoxicated, but they are not foolproof. It is possible to question the validity of these tests based on:
- Elapsed time between when you were drinking, when you were driving and when you were tested
- Lack of probable cause that you were driving while intoxicated to initiate the test
- The location where the test was taken and whether you were observed for 15 minutes prior to the test
- The qualifications and training of the person administering the test
- Improper calibration of testing equipment
