Weak BAC Evidence May Be Challenged in Court

Having been certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in a course on DUI detection and field sobriety tests, the lawyers at our firm are very familiar with the methods of gathering evidence in DUI cases. As such, they are also extremely knowledgeable regarding different methods of challenging that evidence.

Even if your BAC was at some point accurately measured as being over the legal limit, it is possible that this result may not reflect your BAC at the time you were actually driving. As the body takes a certain amount of time to absorb alcohol into the bloodstream, your BAC typically peaks nearly an hour after your last drink.

If this peak occurred between the time that you were pulled over and when your BAC was tested as over .08, it is possible that the amount of alcohol in your system was within the legal limit while you were actually operating your vehicle.
