What Are Breath Tests?

In Maryland, particularly in Harford and Cecil Counties, breath tests are commonly administered during DWI stops to determine a driver’s level of intoxication. These tests include preliminary breath tests (PBTs) at the roadside and more sophisticated breathalyzer tests at police stations. While PBTs provide initial estimates and are not typically admissible in court, breathalyzer results are considered more reliable and can significantly influence the outcome of a DWI case. However, both types of tests have specific legal and procedural requirements that must be met to ensure their reliability and admissibility.

At Ryan Law LLC, we focus on the intricacies of both PBT and breathalyzer tests, ensuring that any test administered to our clients complies with the required standards. We scrutinize the conditions under which these tests were conducted, from the calibration of the devices to the training of the officers involved, to identify any potential grounds for challenging the results.

Challenges to Breathalyzer Evidence

The reliability of breath tests can be compromised by various factors that may invalidate the results. Our DWI attorneys are skilled at identifying and challenging these issues, which include improper calibration, faulty maintenance, and errors in administration.

  • Ensuring that all breath test devices were properly calibrated and maintained according to the latest standards.
  • Examining whether the test was administered by trained and certified personnel.
  • Investigating if proper protocol was followed, including the provision of Miranda warnings and accurate test instructions.

Defending Against DWI Charges Based on Breath Test Results

At Ryan Law LLC, our defense strategies are tailored to address the specifics of each case. If a breath test forms a significant part of the prosecution’s case, we meticulously review every detail related to the test. This includes challenging the breath test results based on technical flaws, procedural errors, or violations of constitutional rights. We also explore additional defenses such as the impact of medical conditions or dietary factors that could skew the results.

Our comprehensive approach may involve consulting with forensic experts to provide testimony on the unreliability of the breath test results or to conduct independent analysis if necessary. Our goal is to ensure that flawed or unfairly obtained evidence is not used against you.
