Blood Alcohol Tests Archives

Don't trust your math! You might actually be over the legal limit

If you're someone who has been drinking for a number of years, then you likely know how alcohol affects you in different situations. You probably notice that you feel far drunker after you've consumed alcohol on an empty stomach versus after having eaten a large meal. You may also notice that if you stretch out your alcohol consumption, you feel less inebriated than if you consume alcohol quickly.

Personal Breathalyzers: a great way to avoid a DUI

Have you ever been out at a sporting event or concert, had a couple of drinks and wondered what your blood-alcohol level was? Or have you ever consumed alcohol at a friend's house or party, then questioned whether you were sober enough to drive home?

Challenging the legitimacy of a DUI traffic stop

If you are out driving and you suddenly see flashing lights in your rearview mirror, the first question you probably ask (to no one in particular) is: “What did I do?” In some cases, you might not be aware of breaking any laws. Other times, you might know that you were doing something illegal but don’t know how the officer spotted you.

The many steps of a DUI investigation, and how mistakes change it

There is so much going on with a drunk driving charge that many people don't consider. Usually a drunk driving story is reduced to the lowest common denominator: someone was intoxicated, they broke the law, now go to jail you reckless person.

Should all Florida police officers wear body cameras?

Imagine for a moment that you are pulled over by a police officer late at night in Orange County or elsewhere in Florida and told by that officer that he or she has probable cause to suspect you have been driving under the influence of alcohol.
