One of the most important pieces of evidence used by law enforcement officers and prosecutors is that of the breathalyzer test results. The breathalyzer test is most often issued at the scene of a traffic stop when an officer believes that the driver is impaired. If you blow more than the legal limit you will be placed under arrest for driving under the influence.
There are some issues that can arise from a breathalyzer test and an experienced DUI defense attorney in Atlanta will know the issues and how to bring them to light in a case. David M. Schnipper, Equire, of Schnipper Law, P.C., is a premier DUI defense attorney representing clients charged with DUI in and around the Atlanta area. It’s important for you to understand that your breath test cannot simply be used in court because you blew over the legal limit. Your case could see a successful outcome when you work with an experienced attorney who knows how to have the breath test thrown out as evidence.
How to Challenge Breath Test Results
At Schnipper Law, P.C., we utilize a variety of challenges when fighting breath test results for our clients. These challenges include the following:
● The breath test is unreliable because of radio frequency interference, or RFI.
● The proper training was never administered to the officer who conducted the test.
● The technology used in the devices cannot be relied on 100 percent of the time.
● The monthly inspection of the breathalyzer device was insufficient and then the test was administered.
● An inaccurate reading was given after calibration of the device was performed incorrectly.
