Overview of DUI Breath & Blood Tests
Gwinnett DUI Attorney Dedicated to Protecting Your Future
The State of Georgia can charge you with DUI due to alcohol or some other impairing substance (like illicit or prescription drugs or even over the counter substances like inhalants or over the counter medications). You may have taken a breath test at the Detention Center, submitted to a blood test at the hospital, or forced to take a blood test by warrant at either place. If you tested above the legal limit of .08 BAC/BrAC, the officer will charge you with DUI.

Even If You Tested Above the Legal Limit, You Can Still Fight the Charges
Having a drug in your system or registering over the legal limit of .08 BAC/BrAC does not mean that there is nothing that can be done to help you. Though the cases are bit more challenging, hiring an attorney experienced in DUI Detection and Enforcement always gives you a fighting chance.
Can I Be Charged If I Did Not Submit to Testing?
Many people charged with DUI never submit to a breath or a blood test. This means that the person is charged with DUI – Less Safe (suggesting that due to what you had consumed you were “less safe” to operate a motor vehicle).
