The state of Ohio will spend around 7 million dollars on the Intoxilyzer 8000, a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) breath test machine. This is the same breath test machine used in Jacksonville and all of Florida.
The Alcohol Testing Program within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is responsible for regulating the operation, registration, and inspecting of these machines. The reliability and accuracy of the machines is very important because the results are used against the person arrested for DUI in Jacksonville and all of Florida. If your blood alcohol level, as shown by your blow into the machine, is .08 or higher, there is an automatic presumption that you are impaired by alcohol. This presumption can be challenged by other evidence, such as your performance on the field sobriety exercises.
