How do BAC machine breath tests work?
Like field sobriety tests, there are very technical statutory requirements that police officers must follow when using a Dräger / Draeger Alcotest 9510. However, officers often cut corners as they churn out DUIs or simply don’t know the law. If the officer did not follow proper procedure during your traffic stop, your test may be inadmissible as evidence against you.
Similarly, the BAC machine may give a deceptively high result if you have alcohol in your mouth, rather than reading the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) on your breath alone. In these cases, we will bring evidence to show that your breath test results are inadmissible. Washington Breathalyzer Lawyers Challenging The Reliability Of BAC Testing
