Many people are under the mistaken belief that a failed
breathalyzer test will automatically lead to conviction. This is far from the truth. The
breathalyzer devices used by police in Savannah and around the state are
not able to accurately measure a person's blood alcohol concentration;
they can only estimate the amount of alcohol in a person's breath.
To get an accurate BAC reading, a blood test would be required.
If you fail a breathalyzer test, it could be due to the fact that the officer
was not qualified or inadequately trained on how to administer the breathalyzer
test or the device malfunctioned or was not properly calibrated. There
are instances where an officer may make a suspected DUI stop without having
probable cause to do so. If this happens to you, we can help you fight
to get your case dismissed on that basis alone.
