Breath Testing Machines in Ohio

While a blood test is widely considered the most accurate test to determine blood alcohol content (BAC) in an Ohio DUI case, the breath test is much more commonly used. Why?

That being said, breath testing evidence is typically the most damaging piece of evidence in most DUI/OVI cases. As such, it is important for any good DUI/OVI attorney in Ohio to have a good understanding of the machines, a feel for the scientific theory behind the machines, as well as a comprehensive understanding of the associated regulations.

How Ohio’s Breath Testing Machines Work

When a suspected DUI/OVI driver submits a breath sample into a breath-testing machine, infrared energy is transmitted through the chamber containing the breath sample. Alcohol molecules absorb infrared energy, and the machine is able to measures the amount of infrared energy absorbed.
