Breathalyzer app helps to prevent DUI charge in Colorado

A few drinks can be an enjoyable way to end a hard week or to celebrate a major event. However, a serious problem occurs in Colorado when people opt to drive after drinking one too many drinks. Technologies are available to help a person who has consumed too much alcohol to avoid getting behind the wheel, which may lead to a DUI charge if the person's blood alcohol content is above the legal limit.

Smartphones today feature Breathalyzer technology that allows a person to breathe into the device and then have his or her blood alcohol level calculated. The devices are similar in size to a car. This type of app can even enable a person to graph and thus track his or her drinking over a certain period.

Other apps may help a person to guess his or her blood alcohol content based on physical characteristics. These characteristics may include the person's weight or height, for example. The responsible use of such apps can decrease a person's chances of making the potentially costly decision of driving while not sober.

A Breathalyzer app certainly can help a person to police himself or herself during a night of drinking. However, if a person does end up being arrested and charged with a DUI, a person may feel frantic and anxious about the outcome of the case. Nevertheless, an accused individual is fully entitled to the legal protections that other people who are charged with crimes receive under our laws in Colorado. A person who is accused of driving while intoxicated cannot automatically be convicted without prosecutors furnishing proof that establishes his or her guilt according to the strict guidelines of our criminal justice system. Paying close attention to the evidence that prosecutors decide to present can help in seeking the most positive outcome attainable under all of the relevant facts and circumstances.
