Urine Tests - DUI Test in Alabama Explained By Barclay Law, LLC

Alabama drunk driving attorney John Michael Barclay handles complicated DUI cases

The state of Alabama sometimes uses urine tests to determine if a driver has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over 0.08 percent, the legal limit for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI). The other two approved BAC tests in Alabama include the breath test and blood test. Alabama officials must follow strict guidelines when administering a urine test and while storing the evidence. Failure to do so could result in a BAC urine test being thrown out and deemed inadmissible in court.

Attorney John Michael Barclay understands these rules and regulations and his firm knows how to determine if a urine test was given correctly and knows how to challenge such tests in court. We have a strong track record of results. In case after case, we routinely help people get their DUI charge dismissed. Case results matter here.

"Can I refuse to take a urine test if I'm stopped for DUI in Alabama?"

Knowing what to do when stopped for DUI can be confusing. Many people assume they have to take a urine test if a police officer in Alabama orders them to do so. That's not true. You can refuse to take a urine test to determine your BAC. However, if you do refuse to take this type of BAC test - as well as a blood test or breath test - your driver's license could be suspended for at least 90 days and you could be arrested. That's why you must take legal action within 10 days of your arrest to keep your driver's license. Otherwise, your driver's license could be suspended.

A DUI charge in Alabama can have very serious consequences, which is why it's critical you take serious action right from the start. Contact attorney John Michael Barclay right now.
