Hilton Head Breath Test Lawyer

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, this is a criminal offense that is taken very seriously in South Carolina. One of the primary reasons is that drunk driving is one of the primary causes of accidents that result in death. They are also one of the most preventable accidents. It is a voluntary choice to drink and drive and one that can result in heavy penalties. When law enforcement pulls over a driver under the suspicion that they are operating the vehicle while intoxicated, they can ask to administer a breath test. The driver can either accept or refuse, but there are consequences to both answers.

A breath test is one of the main ways that law enforcement uses to confirm whether a driver is intoxicated or not. South Carolina State laws state that a driver can be arrested if their blood alcohol content (BAC) level is at or above .08%. This can be reached with just a few drinks. Underage drivers can be arrested if their BAC level is .02% or above and commercial drivers are not allowed to drive with a BAC level of .04% or higher. School bus drivers are considered commercial drivers and must abide by these laws.
