Is a urine test accurate?
Return to FAQ Videos
When it comes to urine testing, I would say that a urine test is not accurate when it comes to prosecuting DUI cases. In any urine case, the best that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is going to be able to do is say that whatever substances are found in your urine, you have taken at some point in time. But for a DUI case, in order to be successfully prosecuted, the prosecutor has to be able to say beyond a reasonable doubt that you were under the influence of that substance the night and the time that you were arrested, and a urine test simply does not do that.
