Watch Linda M. Callahan Explain Potential Problems with Breath Testing Machines
Unlike Washington State Patrol breath test technicians, who maintain and repair Washington breath test machines, breath test operators (law enforcement officers) do not have in-depth training on how the machines work.
In a case where the breath test is 0.09 or under, this means the person may be innocent and wrongly convicted of DUI!
“Tough DUI Laws Require Tough DUI Lawyers”
