Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.

A Breathalyzer test is just one part of a DUI investigation

It can be difficult to know what to do in the face of a drunk driving investigation. The stress and pressure of being pulled over and questioned can impede your decision making and even your performance in field sobriety tests. On top of this, you may be asked to submit to a Breathalyzer test. However, depending on the circumstances, you might be worried about the results. We have discussed in a previous article the potential consequences of refusing such a test. However, whether you decide to take it or not, it can still be possible to build a successful defense.

Some of the issues to take into consideration when facing DUI charges include the following:

  • Was the Breathalyzer dependable? 
  • Were you stopped without cause?
  • Was your blood drawn as part of the investigation?
  • Were you informed by an officer of your right to have an attorney support you?

When carrying out a traffic stop and DUI arrest, police are required to adhere to certain standards. If any of these protocols are breached, it can invalidate the arrest altogether or at least undermine the charges against you.

If you are facing drunk driving charges and wondering how to proceed, you might find our page on DUI defense useful. Although the court system may seem an intimidating thing to have to navigate, you do not have to face it alone. By acting quickly and making the correct decisions regarding your defense, you may be able to avoid conviction.
