[Article in Slovak]


According to Slovak legislation any individual consuming ethanol may, under certain conditions, face substantial legal consequences. It is generally known that results of almost any breath alcohol test may be challenged by an experienced defense attorney using scientific principles of these tests. Most common of these legal attacks on breath alcohol test are presented. Lack of attention to this matter from medico-legal societies in Slovak and Czech Republic is also pointed out.
