Is there any way to challenge the breathalyzer test results in my DUAC case?

Yes, there are many ways to challenge the breath test results. An attorney can identify problems by making a close examination of the facts in your case.

These challenges may be based on problems such as:

  • The failure of law enforcement officers to follow mandatory procedure when administering the test, including advising you of your rights in writing and allowing for a 20-minute pre-test waiting period
  • The person who administered the test lacking necessary qualifications
  • The breathalyzer device used for the test being out of maintenance
  • Circumstances indicating that the test gave a false reading.
