What are the DUI laws in Kansas?

When you are stopped by the authorities for driving while intoxicated, the rule is that you must blow, on a breathalyzer implement, a blood alcohol content of .08 or greater to be charged. This is called a "per se" law. Once you blow .08, you are breaking the law. In this instance, there need be no additional evidence of intoxication, only the Breathalyzer test results. There are many ways to come against this type on test, one of them being the training of the person administering the test.

When the blood alcohol test is administered, the police person who is giving the test must be fully trained and this training must be proven by a certificate. If this isn't available, the Breathalyzer outcome can be set aside and the charges can be dropped. Are you facing these charges? You may want to find out more about this. A legal professional can certainly investigate and answer all your questions.

Knowing what the federal and state per se law is can make a big difference in what your charges will be. The overriding law says that anything .08 or larger is the limit for you operating a vehicle. These laws are the same in every state including Kansas.

Did you know that if the Breathalyzer isn't tested regularly that there is a good chance that it may not operate correctly? It must be documented that the implement that the police are using is in working condition or the charges will be thrown out without a trial.

There really isn't any type of "open and shut" cases when it comes to drunk driving charges. Having someone in your corner who is not only knowledgeable about the laws of the state of Kansas but also knows what the federal laws say can be an important step.
