Impaired Driving Laws & Dui Charges Are Not Set In Stone
Drunk driving law states that it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle, while having the care or control over that vehicle, while one’s ability to operate that vehicle is impaired by alcohol. DWI laws also state that, if you are taken into custody on suspicion that you are driving drunk, that a qualified technician will take samples of the accused driver’s breath into a breathalyzer device known as the Intoxylizer 5000C. The test is given to determine how many milligrams of alcohol is present per 100 milliliters of blood. DUI laws state that the charge of “over .08”, or “over 80”, is normally added if the driver’s breathalyzer sample registers over the legal limit of .08. The charge of refusal results when the operator of the motor vehicle refuses to either provide a sample of their breath into the Intoxylizer device at the police station or into a certified breath screening apparatus at the roadside. When choosing a drunk driving lawyer, Edmonton has a number of options, but few have our track record of success.
During police investigation it is possible that errors or grievances can occur. Our approach is to find these faults and exclude as much evidence as possible that is put forward by the prosecution. Cases involving Impaired Driving, Over 80 and Refusal Causing Bodily Harm are highly involved and require that the offices and investigators involved adhere to strict rules and procedures. Even should an officer’s investigation have merit, there are many technical considerations involving breathalyzers and screening equipment that could be at fault or skew results. Haryett & Co. are qualified Edmonton dui attorneys who are able to examine the evidence and scrutinize errors so that as much evidence as possible is excluded from the police investigation and the prosecution’s case against you.
