Were you charged with drunk driving after taking a breath test?

The thought of getting pulled over in Florida on suspicion of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated is enough to make anyone a bit anxious. Police officers often try to get motorists to admit to drunk driving even before a formal arrest has taken place. They may do this by asking questions regarding where a driver has been and what type of beverages they've consumed prior to getting behind the wheel. 

It's common for police to request submission to a Breathalyzer test in such circumstances. You can refuse, but there may be automatic consequences for doing so. The problem with such devices, however, is that many factors can produce false positive results, such as ingestion of cough syrup containing alcohol or use of a particular mouthwash that also contains the ingredient. Most Breathalyzer devices are calibrated by average standards.

This means an individual body composition may vary greatly from the calibration on a specific device. This too, can throw results out of whack. A significant defense option often includes allowing an experienced attorney to question whether a Breathalyzer device used prior or following your arrest was properly calibrated.

Drunk driving is obviously no laughing matter. Conviction often carries serious penalties that can ruin a person's private and professional life. Especially in situations labeled repeat offenses, months or even years behind bars may loom as potential reality for the near future. To increase the chances of avoiding conviction, it's often best to hire an attorney who has successfully fought serious charges in Florida. Rogo Law is prepared to protect your rights and secure as positive an outcome as possible on your behalf.
