- – What is the average burnoff rate of alcohol per hour per person?
- – What is the percentage amount of preservative that should be in a blood sample?
- – What are the top three field sobriety tests recommended by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration?
- – When does a person reach their peak absorption level?
- – What are three major defenses in a breath test case?
An attorney experienced in handling DUI’s will know the answers to these questions. In addition, if you decide to consult with another attorney, ask them to show you a copy of the California Highway PatrolEnforcement Manual which details the procedures a CHP officer must follow with respect to a DUI investigation. If that attorney does not have this manual, you know he/she is not prepared for his/her current clients and will not be prepared for your case. Your decision to then hire that attorney will have been made for you.
