Ways to challenge a DWI/DUI
- Field sobriety tests are inherently unreliable evidence
- Was the stop legal? (Did reasonable suspicion exist to make a stop to begin with)
- Was the blood test or breathalyzer results accurate and properly performed by a qualified person?
- Does the police dash cam support the officer’s version of events?
- Are there other facts that make the breath test inaccurate, such as cough medicine or a medical condition?
- Do you have witnesses that contradict the officer’s version of events?
