Breathalyzer Test

Under state laws, you can be charged with driving while intoxicated if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08% or greater. A commercial driver will face DUI charges with a BAC of 0.04% or above, and a minor can be charged with DUI if their BAC is 0.02% or higher. When you are stopped by law enforcement for DUI, you will be given a field sobriety test and breath test. The breath test uses a device that analyzes a breath sample to determine your blood alcohol content. The results of a breath test can often be inaccurate due to:

  • The use of equipment that wasn’t properly calibrated
  • The use of poorly maintained equipment
  • The administration of the test by an untrained person
  • Physical illness, disease or disabilities that affected the reading

Because of the many factors that can influence a breath test, contact a Baltimore DUI lawyer for legal advice and an independent analysis of your test results to determine their accuracy. A DUI conviction can result in harsh penalties such as jail time, fines and the loss of your driving privileges. Having a qualified attorney review the evidence in your case can help you avoid a conviction.
