The Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department is investigating problems they've been experiencing with the Intoxilyzer DUI breath test machines they have been using. According to preliminary reports, 80% of DC's Intoxilyzer units were affected.
It's not completely unusual for a
breathalyzer machine not to work. Although those machines are used by police departments throughout the country, they can easily produce a false reading when defective or when they aren't used properly. In fact, there are many ways to contest the accuracy of a breathalyzer test result in an effort to fight someone's drunk driving charges. Radio frequency interference, operator errors, failure to properly calibrate the machine, and a lack of officer training on how to use the machine are all examples of factors that could cause a breathalyzer machine to give an inaccurate reading.
