California Drunk Driving Lawyer to determine if you were still absorbing alcohol while driving

California DUI Defense Attorney inquiries:

In order for your alcohol level to be accurate and reliable in a California DUI case, the test result should be representative of your true blood alcohol level at the time of driving (vs. the time of the test).

Were you tested during the absorptive or during the post-absorptive phase?
Was your body still absorbing alcohol at time of driving?
Did your body complete absorption of alcohol at the time of the test?

Your California DUI breath or blood test will most likely be unreliable if administered while you were still actively absorbing alcohol.

If you were still aborbing alcohol at the last time you were driving, your alcohol level would have to be lower at the time of driving than at the time of the California DUI test later taken at jail or the police station.

If you had your last alcoholic drink prior to driving, this is a critical factor.

It can take 30 minutes to 3 hours for full alcohol absorption.

If there is food that has not yet digested, this could further delay absorption.

Because of this absorptive phase factor, the results of your California DUI blood or breath test could be inaccurate or unreliable.

Many factors are to be taken into consideration by your experienced California DUI Lawyer.
