Urine Testing in California DUI cases is very limited as the driver cannot request it unless breath and blood tests unavailable and must take it if DUI cop suspects drugs

There are some major problems with urine testing in California DUI cases, say attorneys. For example, if the driver did not void his bladder, the sample is not a good sample for testing. Both federal and state officials have criticized the use of urine testing in drunk driving cases, lawyers know.

San Diego County DUI Law Center's Rick Mueller writes about the California DMV Manual which essentially limits urine testing to when the breath machine is broke and there is no vampire available to draw blood, or when the DUI cop suspects drugs.
