In South Carolina a .08% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is the limit. SC Law enforcement uses the Datamaster (DMT) to determine breath alcohol levels of suspected drunk drivers. The Datamaster attempts to determine the quantity of alcohol concentration in the accused. The results of the BAC test may not always be accurate for a variety of reasons. Arresting errors, operator error, mechanical error, computer errors and /or errors in the testing procedure by the operator are just a few common mistakes that could potentially make the BAC results invalid and potentially be fatal for the States DUI case.
A BAC test result is just one (1) part of the equation in a DUI case in South Carolina. The BAC test result alone may not be enough to convict you for DUI. There are many reasons why a non-drunk driver may not be able to successfully complete or take the BAC, and you have the right to refuse to take the BAC test. The Phipps Law Firm has the knowledge and experience needed to negate the results of a BAC test.
