About Kansas Implied Consent Law

If you have a Kansas driver’s license, you have theoretically consented to having a breath test or other field sobriety test administered should you be stopped for suspicion of drunk driving. You do have a right to refuse breath or blood alcohol testing, but you face mandatory license suspension if you choose to do so.

Was protocol followed? Was the breath test administered properly?

Breath tests are administered using the Intoxilyzer 8000. An individual blows into the machine and their blood alcohol content (BAC) is measured. The test results could be affected by many factors including: faulty calibration/maintenance, improper administration, the rate at which the individual metabolizes alcohol, breathing, body temperature, breath temperature and some medical conditions.

The Whitman Law Offices can use our extensive knowledge of breath test administration to build a strong defense on your behalf. We can readily identify improper administration and other defenses available. With a careful examination of the evidence, we can ultimately achieve acquittal or reduction of your sentence.
