Breathalyzer Overview

Breathalyzers are one of the most common ways police officers test your blood alcohol content when you're suspected of driving under the influence.

There are several different types of breathalyzers. Most work by measuring the concentration of alcohol on a person's breath, which determines the amount in the blood stream.

However, a breathalyzer is not a fool-proof instrument. Thousands of DUI cases have been argued in court over breathalyzer results. A high reading during a DUI stop is no guarantee of a conviction.
