Can I fight a DUI charge if I know I was under the legal limit?
I invested in a personal breathalyzer a few months ago and have been using it one just about every drinking occasion. To my knowledge, and by the guarantee on the packaging, its 100% accurate. Now I was out the other night, having a beer with some friends after work and I was my own driver that evening. I'm not fool, I know driving while intoxicated is not only illegal, but deadly. I only had 2 beers that evening, and breathalyzed myself before leaving the bar.
I was under the legal limit, and felt I could drive home. Heading home, I was pulled over in a speed trap. I assume the officer smelled alcohol on my breath and subjugated me to a field test. I have no balance, and there for failed the test. The officer on that note, assumed me impaired, and issued me a DUI. Now I know, due to my breathalyzer, that I was under legal limit, and very capable of driving myself home. Can I fight this in a court of law or is it a lost cause?
