The breath machines used by the police to test people’s blood alcohol level are often incorrect or inaccurate. Just because someone blew over the legal limit (.08%) does not mean they are guilty. The machine may not be properly calibrated. The officer may not have done the test correctly or completely. Also, something as simple as a burp prior to the test can throw the results off by a large amount.
If someone has been arrested for a DUI, they need to hire a lawyer who understands how the breath machines work and what can cause them to be inaccurate
