ALTHOUGH STATISTICS SHOW THAT MANY MORE MEN ARE CHARGED WITH DUI THAN WOMEN, THERE ARE STILL NUMEROUS WOMEN CONVICTED OF DUI EACH YEAR IN FLORIDA, AND THE NUMBER IS ON THE RISE.

ALCOHOL EFFECTS WOMEN DIFFERENTLY THEN MEN DUE TO THE FACT THAT WOMEN METABOLIZE ALCOHOL MORE SLOWLY. THEY HAVE DIFFERENT BODY COMPOSITIONS, ALCOHOL ABSORPTION RATES AND BODY-WATER CONTENT LEVELS COMPARED TO MEN. INTOXILYZER TESTS ON WOMEN ARE OFTEN INACCURATE AS THE INTOXILYZER CALCULATES A BREATH ALCOHOL READING BASED ON THE AVERAGE MALE.

WOMEN’S MENSTRUAL CYCLES CAN ALSO EFFECT THE RATE OF ALCOHOL METABOLISM AS THEY EXPERIENCE FLUCTUATIONS IN HORMONE LEVELS DURING THEIR MENSTRUAL CYCLE. IN FACT, THEY WILL EXPERIENCE THEIR HIGHEST BREATH ALCOHOL READING DURING THEIR PREMENSTRUAL CYCLE. BODY TEMPERATURE IS USUALLY ELEVATED AT THIS TIME AND AS A RESULT A WOMEN’S TRUE BLOOD ALCOHOL READING MAY BE OVERSTATED.

 

WOMEN ARE ALSO DIFFERENT THAN MEN IN THE WAY THEY REACT TO ALCOHOL AND IN THE WAY THEY DEAL WITH THE STRESS THAT COMES ALONG WITH A DUI ARREST.

WITH ALL OTHER FACTORS BEING THE EQUAL, A WOMEN WILL HAVE A HIGHER BREATH LEVEL THAN A MAN WHEN BOTH ARE DRINKING THE SAME AMOUNT OF ALCOHOL.

MR. BERNSTEIN UNDERSTANDS THESE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN AND HE WILL BE HAPPY TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THIS AND HOW YOU CAN USE THIS IN YOUR DEFENSE.
