Types of Breathalyzer Tests
While blood tests and urine tests are sometimes used in intoxicated driving cases, Breathalyzer tests are most commonly used in DUI investigations. Many Breathalyzer tests work by producing a color change following a chemical reaction in the machine’s chamber. Others utilize infrared technology to detect the amount of alcohol in a breath sample. Others use a chemical reaction in a fuel cell to detect alcohol.
All BAC tests need to be properly calibrated and maintained, and this is one of the reasons roadside tests are notoriously unreliable. While stationary tests performed back at a police station can produce somewhat more reliable results, it is still essential to contact an attorney who can review the details of your specific situation.
If you can prove that the Breathalyzer test police utilized was not properly administered, calibrated, serviced, or maintained, the results may be inadmissible in court, which could tear apart the prosecution’s case. Working with a lawyer may allow you to defeat the charges you face just by challenging certain aspects of the breath test.
Clinton Township BAC Test Mistakes
There are a number of errors that can be made when administering a BAC test, which can affect the results of the test. First, the police officer administering the test must have proper licensing to administer the test, and must ensure the machine has been calibrated and maintained correctly. Officers must also account for mouth alcohol, and understand that even when a test is properly administrated, a wide range of results is possible.

Refusing a BAC Test in Clinton, Michigan
Because a BAC test can lead to criminal charges, and since they are unreliable in so many cases, many people think they should just refuse to take the test and take their chances in court. This is almost never a good idea, because you can face additional penalties for refusing a BAC test, and can still be charged, since refusing a test appears to be an admission of guilt in many cases.
