A DUI Attorney Can Assail the Evidentiary Value of Breathalyzer Test
"If you are stopped on the road, and suspected of alcohol DUI in Washington, you will be required to take a breath test. The state follows the ‘implied consent’ principle which rules that if an officer stops you with probable cause to believe that you’ve been driving under the influence, then you must comply to take a breath test to gauge your blood alcohol content (BAC). An exception to this compliance would be when you feel that the evidentiary breath or blood test would damage your heath due to a pre-existing medical condition, or due to an injury at the accident scene."
