Understanding The Sizing Behind Breathalyzer Testing
The Breathalyzer test is administered at a law enforcement facility or detention center. The test must be done within two hours of the drunk driving arrest, or evidence obtained from the test may be suppressed.
Our skilled Lexington County DUI/DWI attorneys have technical knowledge of the test. We are dedicated to fighting the charges, spotting inaccuracies in breath test results and minimizing the impact of a DUI/DWI arrest.
Did You Refuse To Submit To The Breathalyzer Test?
If you refused to blow for a breath test, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended for a minimum of six months. Our attorneys can help you request a hearing before the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and obtain a temporary license.
We Challenge The Assumptions
In South Carolina, our breath test machine is called a DataMaster. The DataMaster assumes that each person blowing into the machine has the same metabolic rate, the same breath temperature and the same body temperature as every other person blowing into it. These numerous assumptions are not only unfair — they can yield inaccurate results.
Administrative errors can also skew the test results. For example, the mouth piece has to be handled correctly, and the correct buttons must be chosen according to the prompts.
As with field sobriety testing, breath tests are videotaped. The Taylor Law Firm, LLC, can readily assess if the test administration was handled properly and identify if our experts need to review the videotape.
Our criminal defense law firm is dedicated to minimizing the impact of a drinking and driving arrest. Whether this is your first DUI/DWI or you are facing felony DUI charges, you can confidently turn to us for help.
