Were the Field Sobriety Tests performed properly?
The physical tests that lead to the decision to arrest for DUI are varied, but must be administered according to specific guidelines from traffic police manuals. Where they are performed – lighting, surface conditions and angles, weather – and how they are administered needs to be reviewed. Further, whether they used a portable breathalyzer and its reading will be examined, even though the results of the hand-held breathalyzer cannot be admitted in court as they are not accurate enough.
Were the breath or blood tests taken at the police station or jail performed properly?
After a person is arrested for a DUI, they are taken to a police station or jail for ‘booking’ and to have further testing of their blood alcohol level (“BAC”). Operating a vehicle on a public accessible road with a BAC of 0.08 or more is illegal, although charges can arise with lower BAC if you are still considered “impaired.” The two tests are either breath tested on a larger breathalyzer machine, or blood drawn by a nurse who sends it to a lab for testing. We review the evidence provided to see if the proper procedure is followed, the machines used were calibrated, the tester was qualified, and that the person performing the tests is to be a witness. Again, medical conditions, dentures, certain medications and other situations can distort your results and needs to be brought up in your defense.
