Maybe the breath machine is out of alignment, and your .09 is truly a .07. Maybe the blood test is thickened or aged, and creates a dishonestly high reading. These things may not even be known if you do not fight your case.
What’s more, even in those situations where the BAC is precise, and shows a reading of .08 or higher after you were tested, what does that mean about the timing of when you were driving.
