Law enforcement has increasingly relied upon testing of suspects to determine impairment. These tests are both mechanical tests and also psychomotor tests that are manually performed by a suspect.
In 2008, North Carolina transitioned from the old Intoxilyzer 5000 to the Intoximeters EC/IR II. A new machine brings new questions as to reliability and accuracy. Our office understands how the tests are supposed to be administered, and can advise you of problems related to either the administration of the test or violation of your rights associated with a chemical analysis.
