Beating a DUI in Sarasota Florida
Question the actual validity of this traffic stop.
For a Sarasota officer to stop you, a police officer must have a "reasonable basis" a law is now
being violated. If your DUI lawyer can prove the actual traffic stop is shown to be unreasonable,

to stick to the proscribed procedure (say in a hectic weekend night at 2am inside a typical ER),
the results could be inadmissible in Court.
External factors can affect the results of DUI blood tests. If you take medications which
incorporate alcohol, some natural herbs, or ginseng is going to influence and negate the test.
Using rubbing alcohol on the skin before inserting the needle for the blood draw can also
compromise the results.
