Challenging A Breath Test

Challenging a Breath Test In Georgia  

Have you challenged a breath test? 

Any driver in Georgia pulled over for suspected drunk driving will likely be asked to submit to a breath test. Unfortunately, breath tests have been highly scrutinized and often give inaccurate readings.

Factors That Skew A Breath Test Result

In the state of Georgia, for instance, some departments utilize out-of-date machines that have been proven to read scientifically inaccurate results. Others fail to calibrate or follow protocol that can also skew results. But even if the machines themselves were 100 percent precise, they are presumed to work only in ideal situations.

In the real world, a perfect situation never occurs. Various factors, such as atmospheric pressure, an individual’s diet and a presence of vomiting or acid reflux, for instance, can all influence a breath test reading.

Given such unreliability, contacting a criminal defense attorney if you have submitted to a breath test in Georgia is essential — particularly when so much is at stake. A DUI conviction carries steep penalties, not just a simple fine or community service.
