When stopped for driving while intoxicated (D.W.I.) or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (D.U.I.) almost with certainty, within 2 hours you will be given a Breathalyzer test to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC) also known as blood alcohol level. If you do not pass the test, blowing a .08 or higher, the police will use the results of the test as evidence against you in court.
