Drink Driving Evidence Information
In most prosecutions for drink driving, the driver will be the subject of a roadside breath test. If this proves positive he will be taken to the police station to provide a further breath test. The machine used to obtain this sample is usually a Lion Intoximeter and once again to achieve a conviction for drink driving, the police must obey strict rules.
In certain circumstances, for example, if a person is medically not able to blow into the Lion Intoximeter, the police may proceed to take a sample of blood or urine. Again if this is to be used in a prosecution for drink driving, the police must strictly adhere to fixed procedures and if they do not, a court may refuse to convict a person of the offence of drink driving.
If a police officer suspects a person is guilty of drink driving and the driver cannot provide a breath sample, the decision to take a blood or urine sample is the officers, unless there are medical reasons for not providing blood.
However where a driver taken to the police station on suspicion of drink driving provides a breath test and the lower reading on the breathalyser does not exceed 50mgs of alcohol, the driver has the option to have it replaced by a specimen of blood or urine.
