A DUI can affect your future employment, as well as your family life. That’s why it is important that you understand your rights when it comes to blood alcohol content testing.
Police Will Check Your BAC
If a police officer suspects that you have been driving while under the influence, he or she will attempt to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC). The results will help the officer determine if you have broken any laws.
Types of BAC Tests
Police will typically use the following techniques to check your BAC:
- Blood test
- Urine test
- Breath test
You Have the Right to an Independent BAC Test
