Atlanta, Georgia over the Limit DUI Breath Test
Attorney Lee Webb knows firsthand that there are problems with the Georgia breathalyzer test. He not only completed the Intoxilyzer 5000 breath instrument training course, but also sponsored a course on this machine for other defense lawyers. This training gives Mr. Webb insight into the weaknesses and shortcomings of the breath test.
Breathalyzer machines are designed to measure the air that resides deep in your lungs in order to determine your BAC. However, these devices sometimes confuse this with mouth alcohol, which can falsely inflate the test results. Food trapped between the teeth can soak up alcohol, increasing your reading. Medical conditions, dental work, gum, mints, and even mouthwash can also affect your breathalyzer test.
To work properly, a breathalyzer machine is supposed to be routinely calibrated and maintained according to manufacturer specification. If the device itself is faulty, Mr. Webb can challenge the results of your test.
Even the way the officer administers the test can have a bearing on your reading. Sometimes an officer may ask a driver to blow into the machine for longer than necessary, increasing the BAC result. If the test was administered incorrectly, Mr. Webb may file a motion to have the reading suppressed.
Mr. Webb works with a team of highly experienced investigators and toxicologists who can help him investigate your Atlanta, Georgia over the limit DUI breath test. They can find evidence to disprove the prosecution’s case against you and increase your chances of an acquittal.
As you can see, there is no reason to plead guilty to a DUI just because your BAC was over the limit. Mr. Webb has used a number of defense strategies to win his clients’ case or even reduce their DUIs to a lesser offense.
