My friend who was driving was asked to exit his vehicle to take a breathalyser test.
He last consumed alcohol more than 24 hours before being pulled over yet the device “detected alcohol”. He was told he could drive home, but if he got into an accident on the way home, he would be arrested for drink driving! This is absolutely ridiculous! Are the tests rigged to be extra sensitive?
How is it possible that 24 hours after having a drink, you can still be arrested for drink driving if an accident occurs?
I understand that the Traffic Police are simply doing their jobs and I respect them for making our roads safer. However, their planning needs to be improved and proper protocol followed so residents and innocent motorists are not affected. Also, the breathalyser tests clearly need to be examined to ensure false readings are not obtained. I wonder how many innocent drivers have been made a victim of false readings?
