DUI DWI DRE: Impaired Driving Lawyer
The Naked Intoxilyzer 8000C
The Intoxilyzer 8000C is an "approved instrument" in Canada used in Ontario DUI, Ontario over 80, Ontario impaired driving, and Ontario refusal to provide a breath sample cases. It is a criminal offence in Canada to refuse a proper Intoxilyzer demand. This is probably so even if the particular Intoxilyzer 8000C may not be functioning properly. However, whether or not the Intoxilyzer 8000C is functioning properly, the maintenance data on the Intoxilyzer 8000C may be important to your defence if you are attempting to challenge the readings on the Intoxilyzer 8000C by challenging whether the qualified technician followed ambient test and control check proper protocol using the approved instrument Intoxilyzer 8000C. Your lawyer may wish to retain the services of a toxicologist or forensic technologist to give an opinion about the operation and maintenance of the Intoxilyzer 8000C.
DUI lawyers may wish to obtain disclosure of records of maintenance of Police Intoxilyzer 8000C's to determine if the particular Intoxilyzer 8000C has been properly serviced by officers of the Police Service. DUI Courts are used to hearing evidence from Police officers respecting the maintenance and calibration of their own Intoxilyzer 8000C instruments. DUI lawyers will study disclosed or Court-ordered COBRA data which includes stand-alone calibration checks of the specific Intoxilyzer 8000C, stand-alone diagnostics checks of the Intoxilyzer 8000C, operational errors of the Intoxilyzer 8000C, and subject tests on the Intoxilyzer 8000C. Each Intoxilyzer 8000C has a unique personality and history. Your lawyer will help you determine if you have a defence to an over 80 or impaired driving charge.
