Ways to Challenge DWI Evidence
Outside of any blood or breath tests conducted, much of the evidence against you will involve the testimony of the police officer involved in your traffic stop. If other individuals witnessed the stop, they may be able to provide observations that refute the police officer’s testimony. In addition, you may also be able to provide other reasons for your behavior or appearance. For example, you may have physical limitations that contributed to your poor performance on the roadside tests.
In addition to the above defenses, there are many avenues available for challenging any blood or breath tests performed as part of your DWI stop, including:
- Improper administration of the test-police may have failed to maintain any testing unit used or failed to perform the tests correctly under the state standards.
- False readings due to food or medication-some drugs and foods can interfere with the accuracy of tests, resulting in a higher blood alcohol content reading.
- Lack of information or warnings-police must advise you that, should you refuse to submit to chemical testing, you could automatically lose your license. If they fail to do so, your evidence may not be admissible.
