Breath Test Machine Function in Georgia

Question: How does the breath test machine work in Georgia?

Answer: The machine itself is not only, like I said, it’s not just a machine that has to be calibrated and used correctly; it also sometimes will measure different things. There can be mouth alcohol, for example. If you had just had your last beer, it would not have time to process through your system, it would still be in your mouth. And technically, that would not be in a blood alcohol reading; however, in the Intoxilyzer, a lot of times it will pick up things like that. And I’ve had clients who have even done things like use mouth wash, something that is completely, yes it contains alcohol, but it’s completely unrelated that that machine will pick up. And if there’s any sort of issue like that, we can absolutely call them out on that.
