Texas DWI cases, there are 3 pieces of evidence that are open to

The Intoxilyzer 5000 assumes that everyone has the same blood
breath partition ratio, hematocrit ratio and assumes that all
samples are at an air temperature of 93.2 F. Texas DWI Law does
not utilize any methods which would allow for a retest of samples

to scientific peer review. There are many things which have been
shown to affect a breath test score. These machines are generally
not available for inspections by anyone outside of law

with respect to numerous details. Most police officers do not
include mitigating or exculpatory information in their reports,
mainly negative observations.
