Ohio to Buy Controversial Breath Test Device

The Ohio State Controlling Board authorized the purchase of 700 Intoxilyzer 8000 machines for testing blood alcohol content of motorists suspected of Ohio DUI. Nearly $7 million in federal grant money will be used to purchase the portable breath testing devices. The described intent of the purchase is to standardize the breath test equipment and procedure used to help catch drunk drivers in Ohio.

Concerns were raised during the decision making process because the manufacturer of the Intoxilyzer 8000, CMI Inc of Kentucky, is involved in several law suits with states over the equipment
