With nothing left to do but get arrested or wash the dog's dish I turned on the TV......... And into the "Arts & Entertainment" channel thinking I may learn something. Boy was I surprised.

At that moment there was a version of 'COPS" or "LIVE PD" or one of those shows............... And they were about to give someone a breath test with an official looking gadget. Now this states, and the known civilized wolds, legal limit is 0.08. If you blow 0;07 you are free to go to church. If you blow 0.09 you are a criminal and should be made to ware a flowery shirt.

So the "arresting" officer digs around in his car and finds the gauge.........Then he tells this criminal to "Blow, BLOW, BLOW!" The man did as instructed and the result was 0.08...... CRIMINAL !!!!!!!

Then with as much fan fair as they could muster they slapped the cuffs on and away they all went.

STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My questions are: .............. When was this gauge last calibrated? What did the last criminal blow? How long ago? does the temperature effect the readings?

the difference between 0.07 and 0.08 is minor........... And their call will cost this driver $$$$THOUSANDS !!!!

I have tested things into the "parts per BILLION" and have taught many to use with caution. Field gauges are not to be trusted!

I don't encourage drinking and driving but these field testes are subject.

My point is...……………….. These field gauges should be suspect...…………. There is so much that can effect a good reading...……. And they are testing to a very small number. And the failure of a driver can cost him much.

Sounds more like the BT is used to get the driver to a jail setting where they can get a blood test to confirm the actual BAL.  Plus, they were playing to the camera...

And that's the way it's SUPPOSE to happen. But I have seen people convicted on the breath test alone.

Just doesn't seem right or correct...….

And ………… sure...……………. They are playing to the camera.

If they are convicted and go to prison...……….. I don't think "BUBBA" will care if they have a lawyer.

Bubba will meet you in 'holding', no matter what - you WILL automagically get '3 hots and a cot (more likely the floor)' for one night before you get released 'ROR', but not conviction - at the time of arrest. And, oh yea - the menu? 
Dinner will prolly be baloney and feese on (not even 'Wonder') white bread and a grade school carton of day old milk  with your child on the back of the 'Have You Seen Me?' ad. You're starting with dinner because you got arrested after the bars opened, sometime after lunch.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because you really need something in the stomach to puke up and this will do! Scrambled feggs & facon with (not even 'Wonder') white bread toast (1 slice) and either sugar water juice or the now 2-day old milk with the picture of your missing child on the back - WAIT! It's not your kid! It's YOU!!! Maybe you just aren't seeing really well, but you really could use a hot shower about now as 'Bubba' is batting his eyes at you...
Lunch arrives when you are waking back up and wiping the puke from your face (it IS puke and it IS YOURS, right???!). The throbbing in your head wont stop, but at least you get last night's dinner leftovers of baloney and feese on (not even 'Wonder') white bread and a grade school carton of day old milk  with your neighbor's child on the back of the 'Have You Seen Me?' ad, right before you were to be released ROR 5 miles from home on a humid 90 degree day, you find yourself in another interrogation room to be questioned about the location of your neighbor's kid, even though this time, you really do not know.
So, NO! Ask for the lawyer before saying ANYTHING.

Not worth it.
You have to prove the blood and teeth are yours and being this is such a small town, doncha know that it turns out the 70-year old nurse is your mother's best friend, so you're not getting laid (yet...but 'Bubba' is waiting).

No, but still having to work as a nurse in a crappy jail is a bad thing.  YMMV.

The field test is preliminary and then you are transported to another location for an evidentiary breath test or blood test. Instead of worrying about asking for a lawyer how about you just don’t drink and drive? And just FYI many places will release you with a ticket and a court date unless it is aggravated or a third offense.
