Several years ago, a friend got called in for jury duty to help adjudicate the case of a suspected drunken driver in Whatcom County. The officer had conducted field sobriety tests on the subject but had not been able to do a breath analysis, and at this point it was his word against the driver’s as to whether the latter was intoxicated.
The driver ended up being found guilty, but the whole case probably never would have gone to trial had a breath alcohol test been administered. These tests can simply and easily determine a person’s breath alcohol content, and as such they contribute greatly to keeping drunken drivers off the road, doubtless saving many lives in the process.
To do their work well, and to keep the public safe, law enforcement officers need the right tools for the job.
