Blood Alcohol Concentration

A term that you will become familiar with if you are facing a DUI is Blood Alcohol Concentration, or BAC.

BAC generally refers to the alcohol that is in your blood stream. The authorities can generally attain your BAC through a breathalyzer test, a urine sample or through drawing your blood. Your blood alcohol concentration will equal a number. If that number is more than 0.08%, you will most likely be arrested and taken into custody, as a BAC of .08% or more is a violation of the law.

While it is entirely in your own discretion to refuse a blood, breathalyzer or urine test upon being pulled over, it is important to know that if you are found guilty of driving under the influence, your fees and fines and penalties may increase.

Because there are so many factors that can alter the correct reading of these tests, it is important to have an attorney on your side that can look at all angles of the situation to make certain the appropriate steps were taken. Anything from as little and simple as a burp to a more complex situation such as faulty testing equipment can disqualify and discredit the blood test.
