Can breath test results be challenged?

The shared image that most in Roswell have in reference to drunk driving it likely that of a person outside his or her car blowing into a handheld device under the supervision of a law enforcement officer. Despite measuring one's breath, the actual reading being sought is the alcohol content in one's blood. This might immediately prompt the question of how can a breath measurement say anything abouit your blood? Furthermore, how accurate is such a measurement, and should it be viewed as the sole factor when determining if you are guilty of driving under the influence?

Reviewing New Mexico's implied consent law

Like many in Roswell, you likely believe that law enforcement officials cannot compel you to do anything that you do not consent to. That includes offering a blood or breath sample for testing to see if you might be under the influence of alcohol. Several of the clients that we here at the Sanders Law Firm have worked with in the past have shared this same assumption. What they (and you) might not realize is that through your actions, you have already consent to be tested to determine whether or not you might be impaired while driving.
