Breathalyzer Tests

Breathalyzer Tests

DUI cases can be complex and technical—particularly pertaining to breath tests. Your lawyer will need to understand these tests and their faults and will need to have the resources to provide evidence of a faulty machine or improperly administered test. If your DUI attorney can prove that your blood alcohol level was not accurately measured, your case can take a turn for the better.

The Faults of a Breathalyzer Test

In Los Angeles, the breathalyzer machine used to test a person's blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is the Intox EC/IR II. There are three main areas where a breath test can go wrong.

  • The equipment may be faulty
  • The test may be administered incorrectly
  • The test subject may have a physical or medical condition that alters the results

It is the job of your Los Angeles DUI lawyer to prove where your breath test went wrong. Schedule your free consultation today!

How Breath Tests Should Work

Every breath testing machine must be properly maintained and calibrated, as well as subjected to accuracy tests in order to ensure it is in working order. If this did not occur with the machine that was used to determine your BAC, an attorney may be able to use this as a valid defense.

An important part of a DUI case is your attorney's ability to have evidence suppressed. This will also play a major part in your DMV hearing. If your Los Angeles DUI attorney can prove that the breathalyzer test administered gave an inaccurate reading, that evidence may be suppressed and therefore your charges could be dropped altogether—or you could even face lessened charges.
