May 29, 2009, Newsletter Issue #168: The Breathalyzer Test and Accuracy

Tip of the Week

One of the main reasons a good DUI lawyer will contest the results of a breathalyzer test in court is because there are many things that can cause a false positive when breathing into the machine. For example, if you are pulled over and given a breath test to check your blood alcohol level after having brushed your teeth, you could very well give a false reading.

If your DUI lawyer is going to contest the breath test in court, try to remember exactly what you ate, drank, gargled with, etc. before the test. Remember that some medications such as oral contraception also can call into question your test results. Tell your lawyer all this information for maximum ammunition in court!
