Anaheim BAC Test Attorney

In the state of California, police officers most always administer tests to measure any suspected drunk driver’s Blood Alcohol Content. This number is the amount of alcohol found in your blood and is crucial to the prosecution of your case. The legal limit for alcohol in the state of California is .08%. However, please understand that you can be arrested for DUI with a BAC level lower than the legal limit if your driving is reckless.

Even if you refuse a BAC test, you can still be arrested and convicted of DUI. There is a misconception that refusing a BAC test is helpful in court, but in fact it is considered an admittance of guilt. And if you are convicted of drunk driving your refusal will be used to increase your punishment, most often in the form of increased jail time.

There are three different forms of BAC testing: breath, blood, and urine.

Breath tests are usually the first test administered at the scene of a traffic stop using small device called a breathalyzers. Breathalyzers were once thought to be revolutionary to police work and the prosecution of DUI offenses, but their efficacy has been debated in recent years. Blood tests and urine tests are more accurate methods of BAC testing, but these test results can be defeated in court as well.
