This is the Drager Alchotest 5000, the most commonly used Breath-Alcohol Testing device. However, it is not perfect and can produce false and unreliable results. The machine is generally calibrated to detect the amount of alcohol in the persons breath sample. However, if you are a smaller person or fairly large, you are not average and your results may not be accurate. In additional to needing to be calibrated to function properly, the machine must be sufficiently warmed before each use or it may return a false positive. Other factors can also produce a false positive.

New Law requires Motor Vehicle Breath Machines “Ignition Interlock Device” to be placed in cars for a DUI conviction, and DWI conviction or a refusal to submit to Breath Test.

“Ricci’s Law;” Increases Ignition Interlock Device Requirements for Certain Drunk Driving Offenders.

Assembly Bill No. 3073(2R), entitled “Ricci’s Law,” provides that all persons convicted of first, second, and third offenses of drunk driving would be required to install an ignition interlock device in any motor vehicle that they own, lease or operate. Current law imposes driver’s license suspensions on all persons convicted of drunk driving and allows the court the option to order the installation of an ignition interlock device after the license suspension period is over and the license is returned to the person. Under the law, the interlock device would be mandatory in all cases and, in addition, would also be required to be in effect during the period of time that the license is suspended.

These Assembly amendments provide that persons who are convicted of refusing the breath test also would be required to install an ignition interlock device. They are subject to the same requirements imposed on convicted drunk drivers under the law, except that all first offenders of the refusal statute would be required to install the device. The amendments also clarify that offenders for offenses other than drunk driving or refusal to submit to the breath test would not be subject to the provisions of the ignition interlock statute. The amendments also provide that the device would be installed only on the vehicle principally operated by the offender.

The amendments also provide for reduced fees for certain persons required to install the device. If the person’s family income does not exceed 100% of the federal poverty level, the monthly leasing fee would be 50% of the cost established by regulation. If the person’s family income does not exceed 149% of the federal poverty level, the monthly leasing fee would be 75% of the cost established by regulation. Persons who qualify for a reduced fee would not be required to pay the installation fee, the fee for monitoring of the device, or any fees for calibration or removal of the device.
