Did you know: DUI evidence such as breath tests and field sobriety tests are not conclusive? You can challenge them in court. If you were arrested for driving under the influence, a skilled Miami-Dade DUI attorney from our firm can help you challenge alleged evidence held against you by the prosecution.
Your attorney must be ready to scrutinize every aspect of your case in order to provide you with the best possible DUI defense. Everything, from the traffic stop to the breath test, must be scrutinized by your lawyer. DUI evidence can be challenged in a number of ways. The first place to begin is with the traffic stop. A police officer cannot arbitrarily pull you over. It is important to know the reason for the stop as an improper stop could result in your DUI being dismissed.
Even if the officer stopped your car for a valid reason, he / she must have continuing evidence to elevate the traffic stop to a full-blown DUI investigation. A DUI investigation can stem from any traffic stop; even a minor infraction.
If you submit to the breath test, the result provided by the breath machine should never be taken at face value. They are, after all, machines and can produce results that are far from accurate. Florida law requires that these breath machines receive regular maintenance checks and inspections. If the police department responsible for maintaining the machine has not fulfilled the legal inspection requirements, the breath result - no matter how high - may not be used against you.
