OVI Breath Tests: Faulty Assumptions

Why do Ohio OVI attorneys question OVI breath tests? Each of our lungs contain about 300 million small air sacs called “alveoli” that are responsible for the air exchange that keeps us alive.  In the alveoli, oxygen from the inhaled air is exchanged for carbon dioxide.  Air finds its way to the alveoli via the trachea which divides into the two main stems (bronchi) of the lungs.  From there, the air passes through sub-bronchi that may subdivide over 23 times.  As the air is passing through the lungs it passes over a rich layer of mucus which warms and humidifies...

OVI Law: The Officer Can Testify Even If He/She Was Incompetent

Imagine for a moment that you are stopped for suspicion of drunk driving.  The officer asks you out of the vehicle and begins to administer "standardized field sobriety tests."  You start to notice that the officer is unsure of himself.  Maybe he/she give contradictory instructions or stops you and tells you to do it a different way.  As the tests proceed you begin to fear that the officer does not know how to properly administer the tests.  Surely, this will not be used against you in court, right?It is the burden of the state to demonstrate the admissibility of the...

OVI Case Law Update: State v. McMahon

In State v. McMahon, 12TRC-34824B, the city of Cincinnati appealed a ruling which granted a motion to suppress.  The trial court suppressed the results of McMahon’s breath test after determining that the director of health had not promulgated the necessary requirements under R.C. 3701.143 for obtaining the access card required for operation of an Intoxilyzer 8000 machine.The issue for appeal was whether the trial court correctly found that the director of health had failed to promulgate the qualifications required for the issuance of an access card to those seeking to operate an Intoxilyzer 8000 machine.  Pursuant to R.C. 3701.143, the director...

Don’t Drink (Diet Soda) and Drive

A new study released in the journal Alcoholism suggests that cutting alcoholic drinks with diet soda makes them more potent than using their full-calorie counterparts. Specifically, researchers found that mixing alcohol with diet (sugar-free) soft drinks resulted in a higher breath alcohol content than mixing alcohol with a regular (sugar-sweetened) soft drink.  And we are not talking about a small difference.  "Participants who drank diet soda with vodka had blood alcohol contents as high as 18 percent more than when sugar-containing mixers were used."  Why?  Diet beverages, since they contain no sugar, do not trigger the stomach to delay emptying,...

Alcohol’s Impact On Motorcycle Operation

It is harder to control a motorcycle than it is to drive a car.  The motorcycle requires a need for greater coordination and balance.  Motorcycle accidents also carries a considerably greater risk of injury or death.  An assessment of operating performance of experienced motorcyclists using a motorcycle simulator reveal positive correlations between potentially fatal errors and breath alcohol levels well below the then-accepted legal limit of intoxication of 0.10 g/dL (Colburn et al., 1993).  Performance decrements were noted as BAC increased from 0.038-0.059 g/dL (Robinson et al., 1990).Motorcyclists drink at a higher percentage than car/truck drivers, but the motorcycle operators...

Will Jell-O Shots Help Ohio’s Economy?

At least one Ohio State Senator believes we can fuel an economic comeback on Jell-O shots. Tucked away in the Ohio budget is a proposal that Ohio allow the sale of food and confections containing alcohol.  Existing Ohio law doesn’t allow the sale of food and confections containing “intoxicating liquor" of more than one-half of 1 percent alcohol by volume.  The proposed law would revise the “ mixed beverages” definition to include solids and confections “obtained by mixing any type of whiskey, neutral spirits, brandy, gin, or other distilled spirits with water, juice, or other flavorings and that contain between one-half percent...

OVI Law: You Don’t Need A Turn Signal When Going Straight

Ohio v. Paseka, 2013-Ohio-2362On December 29, 2011, Cory Paseka was traveling westbound on Lima-Sandusky Road in Erie County when he came to a fork in the road.  He continued straight on Lima-Sandusky Road and did not veer to the left which would have put him on Wahl Road.  An officer proceeded to stop Paseka for a violation of O.R.C. 4511.39 (failure to use a turn signal) which states,"No person shall turn a vehicle...
