Truth Behind Breath and Blood Tests
DWI Attorney in San Antonio
field sobriety tests, you have the right to refuse taking a breath or blood test. Law enforcement
officers often use chemical tests to determine your blood alcohol content
when they pull you over on the suspicion of
drunk driving. There are two types of machines they use to measure the alcohol level
in your breath: Intoxilyzer 5000 and Breathalyzer. For the blood test,
they simply draw blood from you. While these tests may seem like foolproof
methods, they're not.
Don’t assume that because you were given a breath or blood test in
the course of a DWI arrest you are guilty of the charges against you.

What Can Go Wrong During BAC Testing?
There are many factors that come into play when performing either a breath
or blood test. The procedures must be perfectly carried out to ensure
the accuracy of the results. As you may know, not all law enforcement
officers are perfect. Everything from calibration problems to lack of
probable cause may contribute to the effectiveness of the test.
- Some factors that can affect the results from a breath or blood test include:
- Improper calibration of the machine
- Poor maintenance or administration
- Lack of a search warrant for blood tests
- Qualifications of the person administering the test
- Procedures performed to conduct the test
