Radio Frequency Interference Can Inflate Your DUI Breath Test Results

In Arizona, there is only one approved breath alcohol testing device for DUI suspects - the Intoxilyzer 8000. This breath test machine works by utilizing an infrared light as its primary detection mechanism for breath alcohol concentration (BAC). As a result, it is important that there is not any radio frequency devices anywhere near the breath test machine while it is testing someone's breath for alcohol. If the device encounters radio frequencies, they could interfere with the test and drastically inflate the reported breath alcohol results!

Arizona's Breath Testing Machine: The Intoxilyzer 8000

In Arizona, there is only one type of breath testing machine that is admissible in a DUI case -- the Intoxilyzer 8000. It is produced by a Kentucky company called CMI. In my opinion (and many others' opinions), this machine is not a very good breath testing device, as it often gives inflated (or higher) results than it should when testing a person's BrAC (breath alcohol content). Why then is it the only breath testing machine that the police can use in Arizona? Why can't the police use one of the significantly better alternatives available on the market? Could it be an example of state government at its worst?

Breath Results Affected by a Chili Dog

If you are like me, the idea of a chili dog is both exciting and terrifying. I would have difficulty arguing with someone who took the position that a chili dog is not the most delicious food ever invented. However, thanks to acid reflux, the chalky taste of the Tums I need to take afterwards tends to put a damper on that culinary indulgence.
