Blood & Breath Tests

Lynnwood DUI Attorney

The law in the State of Washington states that an individual who operates a motor vehicle in the state is deemed to have given consent to tests of their blood or breath in order to determine alcohol concentration levels or the presence of any drugs in their system. This is known as the "Law of Implied Consent." An officer of the law requests that a blood or breath test be given if they suspect that the individual has been driving or has had control of a vehicle and is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The officer is required to inform an individual that if they refuse the blood or breath test that their license will be revoked for at least one year and their refusal can be used as evidence in a criminal case against them.

The officer must also inform the individual that if they submit to the test and the result is .08 or higher (in the case of an adult), .02 or higher (in the case of a minor), or .04 or higher (in the case of a commercial driver) they may lose their license for at least 90 days.

The officer must also follow exact procedure in administering the breath test. He must perform a mouth check on you to make sure you have nothing in your mouth prior to the test. He must also perform an observation period of at least 15 minutes to make sure you do not put anything in your mouth.

Over the years we have had breath tests thrown out and charges reduced or dismissed for multiple reasons involving mouth checks including: chewing tobacco remnants in the mouth, failure to remove lip or tongue jewelry, putting your finger in your mouth, using the bathroom after the mouth check, an officer leaving the room to check on another subject, invalid sample error messages and many others.
