Our Office Can Help You Challenge Breath Test Results In Your DUI Case
In Virginia, a driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher is presumed to be legally intoxicated for drunk driving purposes. There are also implied consent laws that, in summary, state that every licensed driver within the state is considered to have given his or her consent to chemical testing, to determine his or her BAC whenever a law enforcement officer has reasonable suspicion of intoxication. In Virginia, unreasonable refusal to submit to such a test results in license suspension or revocation.
While a blood test is arguably more reliable, the breath test for BAC is more commonly used because the test is easier to administer, can be used by nonmedical personnel, is less physically intrusive to the person taking the test, and produces results faster. However, under certain circumstances, breath tests can be less than reliable as an accurate measure of BAC.
