If you have any interest in breathalyzers you've probably asked yourself this question: Can I refuse a roadside breathalyzer test?

Recently, a TV news channel followed two police officers on a DUI patrol.  You can view the video below.  Within the video officer Reid tells us that you can refuse the roadside breathalyzer test, but if they have enough evidence you were drinking alcohol they will take you to the police station and you must then submit to an evidential (Intoxilyzer 8000 or similiar) breathalyzer test, otherwise you will be charged with a DUI refusal.

Bottom line, don't drive drunk, and always test yourself with a personal breathalyzer.

Tokyoflash watch design concept
Tokyoflash watch design concept

A new concept from the Tokyoflash Design Studio--a touch screen LCD watch design that does much more than simply tell you the time. It also gives an indication of your blood alcohol content (BAC) to gauge your level of sobriety.

Not sure if it is more discreet than a handheld breathalyzer since you will be blowing into your watch, an abnormal behavior that may draw the attention of some.

Bay City Police Officer Dan Anderson

A feel-good news story came across the breathalyzer news lines yesterday. In Bay City, Michigan a police officer (Dan Anderson), after meeting with the Good Samaritain Rescue Mission's director (Debbie Nelson), went back to the office and decided that he needed to help the homeless shelter out by providing a breathalyzer kit.  After Dan and a few fellow officers pitched in they were able to purchase a breathalyzer kit and donate it to the resuce misson.  Needless to say, Debbie and the rest of the mission staff were very pleased and thankful for the gesture. "This is a total surprise," Nelson said. "And to have the officers purchase this out of their own pocket is humbling."

Way to go Dan! We're glad that breathlayzers are playing an important role in the rehabilitation of homeless individuals.

Did you know that Q3 has donated breathalyzers to various organizations? View our Q3 Cares page.

DUI Patrol
DUI Patrol, photo by: Steven Damron

As the winter holiday season approaches area police will be stepping up their DUI enforcement efforts throughout your state. If you are going to be out drinking take a cab home or bring along your breathalyzer and test yourself before driving.

Depending on your state, a DUI conviction comes with steep penalties for even first time offenders, including up to one year in jail, up to $2500 in fines, a six month license suspension and mandatory use of a breath alcohol ignition interlock device.

When pulling over drivers police officers look for a variety of indicators to spot potential drunk drivers, these include:

  • Turning widely
  • Braking erratically
  • Driving without headlights
  • Weaving, swerving, drifting out of the lanes
  • Straddling the center line
  • Responding slowly to a change in traffic signals
  • Turning abruptly
  • Accelerating or decelerating rapidly


Don't have a breathalyzer? We offer personal breathalyzers right here at Q3ATS. Looking for a professional breathalyzer? The AlcoHAWK PT500 is used by police officers to do roadside screening of potential drunk drivers.

Bicycle breathalyzer

Interesting news article to share today, a team of engineers at Taiwan's Chienkuo Technology University have built a bicycle with a separate electric motor driving each wheel, handlebar warmers and a breathalyzer that will prevent the bike from being ridden if the cyclist is over the legal limit.

It doesn't look like there is much demand for this type of invention, but kudos to the engineers for their ingenuity.
