DUI Myths

DUI Attorney in Sacramento CA – DUI Myths

DUI Attorney in Sacramento CA

Due to propaganda and deception, certain myths regarding driving under the influence has formulated over the years. One of the most common myths is that blood alcohol content is a reliable indicator of driver impairment, when in reality, people who regularly consume alcoholic beverages are typically less impaired at a given BAC than someone who doesn’t drink as often.

Similarly, the myth that a breathalyzer is a reliable and consistent indicator of Blood Alcohol Content and that the given BAC as a result is a reliable and consistent indicator of driver impairment is another myth. In truth, breath alcohol content is highly inconsistent as a measure of blood alcohol content, varying from person to person and situation to situation.

Another common myth is that the likelihood of being in an accident increases even if only one drink is consumed. If arreasted speak with a DUI attorney in Sacramento CA, call (916) 441-4888 today.

There is even greater ambiguity in myths when it comes to the “arresting” stage of a DUI. One myth in this regard is that it is always better to refuse to provide blood, or breath if suspected of a DUI. In reality, this is circumstantial. In some situations, a driver is better off refusing to provide evidence but in other situations, refusals can be harmful and can carry additional penalties.

Additionally, refusing to perform field sobriety tests is not the same as refusing to provide a sample of blood or breath. But this refusal may be used for other reasons like showing probable cause for your arrest. If chosen to accept the field sobriety test and you pass, the police will not necessarily let you go. The police know that field sobriety tests are unreliable and therefore if they suspect you are driving while impaired, they will make you take a blood or breath rest regardless.
