To secure a conviction for DUI (driving under the influence) in Tucson or Pima County Arizona, law enforcement officials (the police) and the prosecuting attorney will often utilize a driver’s breath or blood test results and use them against an individual accused of drunk driving.
A breath test, blood test, or sometimes a urine test may be used to determine a driver’s BAC level. (Blood Alcohol Concentration. The BAC level is an indicator of a driver’s level of alcohol in the blood system. If a driver in Tucson, Marana, and throughout Arizona is operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater, he or she may be charged with DUI. Underage drivers may face license suspension penalties with a BAC of .01% or greater, and commercial drivers may face criminal charges with a BAC of .04% or greater. Know your limits!
About Tucson Breath Tests
During a drunk driving arrest in Tucson administration of a breath test is typically done by having a driver blow into a breathalyzer device which analyzes a breath sample of the driver and determines the concentration of alcohol. Breath tests are commonly considered less reliable than blood tests and may have a number of issues arise that can affect a driver’s result. An experienced DUI attorney like the ones at My AZ Lawyers can bring these issues into question to challenge your breath test result. For example, the machine must be calibrated frequently and according to Arizona state standards in order for the results to be admissible in court. In this case, if the breathalyzer device was not calibrated, your lawyer may be able to use this to your advantage.
Blood tests are often administered when an individual is arrested for DUI in Tucson, Pima County, Arizona. The typical blood test is conducted by taking a blood sample of a potential drunk driver and then processing this to determine the driver’s blood alcohol concentration.
