Problems With The Intoxilyzer 8000: You Blew Too Much!

The Intoxilyzer 8000 measures how much breath you provide by something called a 'pressure transducer.' Instead of directly measuring the volume of your breath by a pressure switch, like the old Intoxilyzer 5000 did, the 8000 indirectly measures breath. Did you blow during an arrest? Watch this video. Not only is it needlessly complicated, it simply doesn't work! The flow sensor systems in Florida's Intoxilyzer 8000's are so unreliable that FDLE ordered that police STOP KEEPING RECORDS of the system in monthly checks. In 2011, a system-wide check showed that 40% of the machines in Florida couldn't accurately measure breath volume!...
