DUI Urine Test Georgia
If you were recently charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in Georgia, you may have taken a breathalyzer or other chemical test prior to being arrested. While these tests are designed to measure the amount of alcohol in your bloodstream, many of the methods law enforcement use are prone to human error and often provide inaccurate results—and this is particularly likely if you were given a DUI urine test.
Like any other chemical test, urine tests are designed to calculate blood alcohol content, or BAC, based on the amount of alcohol and/or drugs detected in a person’s urine. However, since these tests use water levels to determine BAC, their results are far less reliable than blood and breath tests.
In addition, urine tests can only reveal whether a person has any traces of alcohol or drugs in his or her system—they cannot actually determine when they were used. This means that, if you have used alcohol or drugs recently, the substances may still be detected in your urine long after their effects have worn off.
Fortunately, in order for your charges to hold up in court, the state must prove that you were impaired by drugs and/or alcohol at the time you were actually driving. Since DUI urine tests do not provide sufficient information to prove this requirement, their results tend to be much easier to challenge than other chemical testing methods.
If you were recently arrested for DUI after taking a urine test, it is important to obtain legal representation immediately. In many cases, you may be able to question the accuracy of your test results and prevent them from being used as evidence against you in court.
