Have you ever been in a parking lot when suddenly a loud, continuous alarm began to sound from someone's vehicle? In rare circumstances, it might have been an unwelcome party trying break into a particular car. More times than not, however, a vehicle owner likely hit the wrong button on his or her key fob, thus resonating high, audible tones through the air. Some New Hampshire travelers even use this handy feature to locate their own cars when they forget where they parked.
Like law enforcement agencies elsewhere in the country, New Hampshire police departments use portable breath testing machines to validate arrests when officers suspect a driver of being under the influence. What you might not know is that the results of those breath tests might not be admissible in court.
Massachusetts and New Hampshire have some of the strictest drunk driving laws in the country. If charged with a DUI in either of these states, you would be wise to take quick action to protect your rights and effectively confront these criminal charges. Even first-time offenders face steep penalties, but you do not have to face this serious legal situation alone.
