California DUI eye machines - new

California dui lawyer - California DUI lawyers news

One of the latest things in the DUI / drunk driving circles is a
machine that measures eye movement using infrared light. The
California Highway Patrol is interested in the machine.

The cost may be about $3,500 for a hand held California DUI machine, $35,000 for a
stationary one eye California DUI machine and $55,000 for a stationary two eye California DUI machine.

With an estimated 1/2 million police cars in the US and thousands of police agencies as potential DUI markets, hundreds of millions of dollars are involved.

The fact that the new drunk driving machines are even being looked at confirms California DUI criminal defense attorneys' arguments that traditional methods of DUI prosecutions such as California DUI breath and California DUI blood testing are not sufficient.

California DUI criminal defense lawyers believe California DUI judges and/or California DUI juries will be hesitant to accept the scientific premises in which the questionable drunk driving eye machines are based.
