Think You Can Beat a Breathalyzer? Check out these myths!

When it comes to drinking, driving should never be an option. Before you get behind the wheel this holiday season after a few drinks and think you have some hacks to beat a breathalyzer test – think again. Here are three debunked myths on how to beat a breathalyzer test —

Myth: When it comes to penalties, it’s better to not submit to a breathalyzer

Fact: Most states have what’s called an ‘Implied Consent’ law. That means by accepting a drivers license in your state, you agree to submit to a breath, blood, or urine test if a police officer suspects you of drinking and driving. If you refuse to submit to the breathalyzer, you could receive an additional charge and still lose your drivers license or be required to install an ignition interlock device.

Myth: Hyperventilating before you submit to a breathalyzer will affect your results and give you a lower blood alcohol concentration (BAC)

Fact: It’s impossible to alter the reading of a breathalyzer by breathing in a different way, just like hyperventilating before you breath into an ignition interlock will affect whether you pass or fail.

Myth: After I sleep off the alcohol, I’ll be OK to drive

Fact: If you drink approximately 5 drinks all in a row and you fall asleep for 5 hours, when you wake up you would most likely still blow over the legal limit on a breathalyzer. Why? You’d have to wait 10 hours to fully metabolize 5 alcohol drinks, so going to sleep is no guarantee you won’t be drunk when you wake up.
