Understanding BAC in California

Experienced & Aggressive DUI Attorney in Pasadena

At sobriety checkpoints, or when you have been pulled over under the suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), law enforcement officials may ask you to consent to a breathalyzer or blood test to determine your blood alcohol content or concentration, also known as BAC. While this is a common way to try and convict someone of drunk driving, the results are not always correct.

If you or someone you care about has been arrested for DUI based on the results of breath and blood tests, it is imperative that you obtain the services of a competent Pasadena DUI lawyer to protect your legal rights and interests. There are a number of ways the results could be flawed and you will need a legal representative to help make that determination and prove it in court.

Contact us online or feel free to call us at (626) 784-4143 today. We can schedule your free consultation with our knowledgeable DUI attorney in Pasadena and get started on your case right away.

Test Results Can Be Flawed

The legal BAC limit in California, and every other state in the US, is .08 percent. If you blew into a breathalyzer or had a blood test that determined your BAC was above that level, you will most likely face charges.

As previously mentioned though, there can be flaws in the test, such as:

  • Surrounding temperature – if it is cool out, air tends to concentrate breath, which can make the reading inaccurate
  • Faulty equipment – the machine used to test your breath or blood may not be calibrated correctly, resulting in an altered reading
  • Inexperienced or improperly trained officer
  • Improper breath blown into breathalyzer – not taking a deep enough breath or burping can alter the results.

Geller, our seasoned attorneys are intimately familiar with these issues and many other problems that can cause incorrect results and we are prepared to use that to our advantage to aggressively fight for you.
