How scientifically accurate are Breathalyzer tests in Ohio?

One of the biggest problems with legally enforcing drinking over the limit and driving is that many people, including scientists, question the accuracy of field Breathalyzer tests. They believe that they can often be faulty because of their flimsy manufacturing, as well as their approximate estimation of blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels using the breath as evidence.

The consequences of a repeat DUI offense

It is common knowledge that driving under the influence of alcohol is not only a crime, but also that it endangers the driver, passengers and other users of the road. This is because alcohol is a depressant and it reduces the response times of drivers. It also makes it more likely for a driver to engage in reckless driving.

The consequences of operating a vehicle impaired

In Ohio, what is often called driving under the influence (DUI) in other states is referred to as operating a vehicle impaired (OVI). The consequences of an OVI in Ohio depend largely on whether it is your first offense or whether you have been caught driving under the influence of alcohol multiple times in the past.

3 consequences of a OVI guilty plea

Facing DUI charges is a serious yet common situation. You might not realize your blood alcohol level is above the legal limit, or you might find yourself without a designated driver. Any number of problems can precede OVI charges and jeopardize your life, your future and your freedom. It is essential to be aware of the consequences that can result from entering a guilty plea in court.
