When an officer pulls a motorist over under suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), there are two ways of determining whether or not the suspect is intoxicated. One way is to conduct Standard Field Sobriety Tests that evaluate the suspect's attention level and motor skills. The other way is to have the motorist take a breath, blood, or urine test to determine their current blood alcohol content (BAC) level.
While a BAC test can be tricky to defend against in court, it is certainly not infallible. Breathalyzer tests are commonly used over blood tests since they are quicker and just as accurate – usually. One way of fighting a BAC test is by proving that the breathalyzer test was faulty. Breath test machines are very delicate and must be properly maintained and calibrated. If the custodian of the breathalyzer machine did not regularly and accurately maintain the breathalyzer, or if the arresting officer incorrectly administered the test, you may have grounds for defense.
