Queens County DWI Attorney

 

How does a breathalyzer work?

 

The breathalyzer has been accepted into standard testing procedures by New York police officers when a driver is pulled over for suspected alcohol abuse. The breathalyzer is designed to determine the individual’s blood alcohol content (BAC).

 

• In the instance of a DWI, a police officer asks the individual to provide a breath sample into the

breathalyzer machine.

• Then, the machine calculates an estimate of the alcohol in the sample of breath.

• The alcohol in the sample is then converted into the standard BAC measurement

 

The measurement calculated by the breathalyzer is then used as evidence that the driver was under the influence of alcohol at the moment of the arrest.

 

Is a breathalyzer accurate?

 

Not always. It is a common assumption that, because utilizing breathalyzers in the event of a DWI issuance is now routine, they are accurate. In actuality, they do not always measure one’s blood alcohol content accurately. There are numerous influences that affect the BAC measurement on a breathalyzer.

 

 

If you have been issued a breathalyzer test and think that it may have been inaccurate, contact Nassau and Nassau County DWI Lawyer, Mark Panzavecchia. Don’t let a false reading take away your driving rights. For a free and professional consultation, call 1-888-LAW-2204.
