Is The Breath Analysis Reading Accurate?
The analysis is accurate but often does not reveal your blood alcohol concentration at the time of driving. You are charged with having a certain blood alcohol concentration at the time of driving – depending on your drinking history, food intake and many other factors such as the time of your last drink, time of your breath test and time of breath analysis – we can provide you with advice about challenging the reading. It could make a big difference to the outcome of your case – especially if we could demonstrate that you were not driving in the mid range at all!
So It Is Possible That My Breath Reading Was Lower?
Yes. Alcohol takes time to enter your blood system as well as time to be eliminated from your system. It may be the case that recently consumed alcohol that was not absorbed at the time of driving was absorbed at the time of breath analysis giving you a higher reading. It is possible that your reading at the time of driving was legal yet you are facing court for drink driving. If you need expert advice, contact one of our specialists.
