Report finds issues with breath test devices

Missouri residents may be charged with drunk driving based on the results provided by a flawed breath test machine. That was the main takeaway of a report published by the New York Times. The New York Times report was based on a broader survey that examined the accuracy of these machines across the nation. In Massachusetts, 36,000 cases were thrown over a period of 12 months because of a myriad of problems with evidence gathered by breath test devices.

Choose the right traffic ticket defense strategy

Even when you do your best to follow the rules of the road, you could still make a mistake that results in a traffic violation. Too many traffic tickets can turn your life upside down, as they often result in fines, points on your license, insurance premium increases and even a license suspension.

Medical condition can lead to failed breath tests

Police officers in Missouri and around the country usually rely on the results of breath tests to determine whether or not a motorist consumed alcohol before getting behind the wheel, but the devices used to conduct these tests do not always reveal the complete picture. There is an obscure medical condition that changes the way carbohydrates are digested, and it can lead to significantly elevated blood alcohol levels even when a person has consumed no alcohol at all.
