Possible Outcomes of Failing to Provide a Breath Test
Failing to provide a breath sample for analysis is a common charge and one that carries a long disqualification from driving as the most likely outcome. A one way valve is fitted into most EC/IR Intoximeter breath testing devices used in police stations throughout Scotland.
This means that if a simple fitting error occurs you can blow and blow and until the walls of Jericho come tumbling down but the machine will not register your sample.
It is therefore very important if you consider that such a thing has occurred that you contact a specialist road traffic solicitor who will do all that he can to preserve evidence for you and secure your defence.
The alternative is to lose your licence. Often for up to 2 years.
Get a specialist lawyer who will challenge the lack of such evidence and do his best to secure an acquittal for you. For a solicitor who knows how to approach this type of case and the issues that are to be considered when challenging such evidence you really should rely on a specialist law firm.
