Experts challenge breathalyzer test

Posted on July 18th, 2011 No Comments

Breathalyzer test results across the country have recently been challenged by DUI experts who say that the results of the test are often found to be inaccurate and they should not be used to convict someone of a DUI.

According to DUI expert Stephen Daniels, there have been hundreds of cases where DUI suspects have given breath samples to breathalyzer machines and a blood alcohol concentration result was given but not a breath volume result. On this basis, Daniels says breathalyzer test results should be thrown out as evidence because they cannot prove that someone actually blew into the machine.

Daniels also says that there have been cases where people have submitted two breath samples to the test but only one result was recorded. For these reasons, experts are asking judges around the country to refuse to allow breathalyzer test results in the courtroom as evidence.
