Myth #5: Breathalyzers are Infallible
This is one of the biggest DUI myths, and gets more drivers in trouble than need be. The common misconception about breathalyzers is that they are completely reliable, and have never failed and/or given a false measurement. But the reality is, breathalyzers are not only notoriously unreliable, they can lead to false positives. If you’ve been arrested for a DUI as a result of a false positive on a breathalyzer test, contact attorney Chad Bank today.
Myth #4: You are Automatically Found Guilty if you Fail the Breathalyzer
Another one of the many common DUI myths is that you are automatically found guilty of DUI if you fail the breathalyzer test. But the reality is, failing a breathalyzer test only means that you are under reasonable suspicion of guilt. You are only found guilty if you plead guilty, or you are found guilty after trial, in a court of law. For this reason, you’ll need the help of an experienced DUI attorney like Chad Bank to help you win your case!
Myth #3: You can Hire any Attorney to Handle Your DUI Case
Another one of the many common DUI myths is that you can hire any kind of attorney to handle your DUI case. But the reality is, you are putting yourself at a real disadvantage if you don’t hire an experienced DUI attorney like Chad Bank!
Myth #2: Your DUI Attorney Will Cost an Exorbitant Amount of Money
Another one of the many common DUI myths is that your DUI attorney will cost an exorbitant amount of money to defend you. But the reality is, attorney Chad Bank has a reputation for being one of the most reasonably priced DUI attorneys in Rhode Island!
Myth #1: If you’ve been pulled over for a DUI, you’ll automatically be found guilty

You’ll need to hire an attorney to represent you in a court of law, so if you’ve been arrested for a DUI in Rhode Island, contact the law offices of Chad Bank today!
