Factors that impact the accuracy of a breath test

If you have ever been pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, you may have been asked to take a breath test. Typically administered by having you blow into a breathalyzer, which is an instrument used to determine your blood-alcohol content, the breath test gives law enforcement an idea of whether you consumed alcohol before getting behind the wheel, and if so, how much. While breathalyzers are believed by many to be highly accurate, they are not fool- proof, and breathalyzer errors have been known to occur. Given how high the stakes and how harsh the punishments are if you end up facing a charge of driving under the influence, it is important to understand the variables that may impact the accuracy of your breath test.
