How are chemical tests for intoxication measured?

Law enforcement officials in Wisconsin can collect evidence of intoxication from a person suspected of drunk driving through chemical tests. Chemical tests, which analyze a suspect's blood or breath for alcohol, can be used against individuals when they face trials for drunk driving charges. The science behind chemical tests can be a bit obscure; this post looks at the statute that defines how chemical tests are measured in Wisconsin.

You have rights when you are charged with DUI

There is no doubt that confronting a DUI charge is challenging. Wisconsin drivers who have been accused of drinking and driving understand the wealth of emotions that accompany a criminal charge of this kind. For many, getting past DUI charges may seem impossible to overcome and some people may choose to simply concede to the accusations rather than to address them head-on.

Blood tests can show extent of a driver's alleged intoxication

The effects of alcohol can vary from person to person. How much a person weighs, whether a person is male or female or even what the person had to eat prior to drinking can impact his perceived and actual levels of intoxication. In some cases, it can be very challenging to tell how inebriated a person is based simply on looking at him.

Drunk driving charges related to open containers

In Wisconsin it is illegal to drink and drive. The term "drinking and driving" applies to actually drinking an alcoholic beverage while driving down a road as well as to situations in which a driver consumed alcohol before getting into a vehicle and driving it. However, some may wonder if drinking while in a moving vehicle is illegal for individuals other than the actual driver.
