Types of Blood Alcohol Content Tests Used in Lansing DUI Cases

The most prominent type of blood alcohol content test used is the Breathalyzer test, which is often first administered roadside, though the results from these portable breath test machines is not admissible in court. Blood tests are also used in Lansing DUI cases, and are usually administered under the care of a trained medical professional back at a police station or hospital. Urinalysis may also be used, but is more common in drug intoxication testing.

Blood and breath BAC tests are used to prove that a person’s blood alcohol level is over 0.08% (for regular drivers), 0.04% (for commercial drivers), or 0.02% (for underage drivers). The standard level of 0.08% is the legal point at which a person is assumed to be intoxicated, which is often all a prosecutor needs to convict a defendant. The ability to challenge the results of a BAC test could prove critical as you fight to avoid life-changing DUI penalties.

Challenging Breath Test Results in MI

There are many reasons why BAC test evidence may be unreliable. Roadside tests are known to be extremely susceptible to even the smallest calibration errors, and tests done at a station can also be affected by procedural mistakes. Giving incorrect or confusing instructions to a suspect can also lead to a false result. Not accounting for possible mouth alcohol, rising blood alcohol level, or other prominent details could also affect the reliability of results. No matter what the specifics of your case, it is crucial that you contact a lawyer who knows how Breathalyzer technology works and how you can effectively fight back against charges built on BAC evidence.
