A temporary ban on breathalyzers could potentially help victims of drunk driving accidents. Instead of using breathalyzers, the State Police will require suspects to undergo blood testing. Blood testing is believed to be more accurate than breathalyzers and could remove some of the confusion about whether tests done immediately after a crash were accurate. The decision was made in response to a Pennsylvania court decision which questioned the accuracy of some breathalyzer tests.
If you believe that you have been hurt in a recent drunk driving wreck, then this may be good news. It may be easier to prove your case if the evidence gathered by the State Police is irrefutable.
