Challenging Breathalyzer Test Results

What to Do with Unfavorable Test Results

With the high number of drunk drivers who are arrested each year, law enforcement is intentional about punishing those found guilty of this offense. That being said, penalties are serious and can result in any or all of the following:

  • Loss of driving privileges
  • Heavy fines
  • Jail time
  • Community service

More importantly, the stigma of a DUI conviction can negatively affect your reputation, strain your relationships, and present employment challenges for many years. While a failed breathalyzer test can seem irrefutable, there is hope with the right defense team on your side.

Breathalyzer machines and the humans who operate them are prone to error – not to mention result in inconsistencies due to weight, gender, and age. Our Dayton OVI/DUI attorneys understand the ins and outs of these devices and can use our knowledge to challenge your charges. Our ultimate goal is to secure a favorable outcome for your future.
