If you were pulled over as a driver in Michigan, it is likely that you will have been ordered to perform a Breathalyzer test. Even if you know that a medical condition such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) could potentially impact the results of breath-alcohol analysis, you have a duty to take the test as a driver and will likely face consequences if you refuse to take the test.
Many people in the state of Michigan are unfortunately held responsible for being measured to be over the legal limit, when in fact they were subject to an inaccurate Breathalyzer test. This is why those charged with a DUI should make sure that they consider their circumstances and take action to defend themselves when they believe it to be appropriate.
If you find yourself driving into a DUI checkpoint, it's important that you immediately get into the right frame of mind. Any mistake you make can increase the risk of an arrest and formal criminal charges.
