Kansas City DUI Attorney

Breath Tests

With over twenty years of experience, Attorney Steve Schanker is a Martindale-Hubbell® AV® rated lawyer serving clients throughout Kansas City. Mr. Schanker is a member of the Missouri Bar Association. He and his team understand that many people are falsely accused of DUI/DWI based of faulty evidence and so they do their utmost to get the charges reduced or dropped.

One of the main types of evidence against you in court is the breath test. Law enforcement uses three main types of devices to measure the amount of alcohol in the blood stream. The most frequently used device is the breathalyzer. This uses a chemical reaction with the alcohol that shows up as a color change. The Intoxilyzer detects alcohol through infrared spectroscopy and the Alcosensor III and IV used a chemical reaction in a fuel cell. All three of these devices contain a mouthpiece into which the driver blows and a sample chamber where the air is tested. Although these devices are accurate for the most part, mistakes can happen.
