DUI Myths

There are many urban myths regarding DUI related crimes which can lead to disastrous results and misunderstandings. Several of these common held beliefs about DUI include:

Myth: Eating will lower BAC content.
Fact: This is untrue. While eating can help with combating the effects of alcohol it does nothing to help with lowering your BAC level.

Myth: Sucking on pennies will lower a person's BAC reading. Fact: Sucking on pennies or other copper has absolutely no effect on alcohol breath tester BAC results. It is also standardized practice for law enforcement to remove everything from your mouth before administering the test.

Myth: Alcohol breath testers measure the concentration of alcohol (BAC) in a person's blood stream.
Fact: Alcohol breath testers don't actually measure BAC, which can only be done by analyzing a sample of blood. They attempt to measure alcohol in the breath in order to estimate the concentration of alcohol in the blood. This is the reason why not all states permit their use.

Myth: The use of breath fresheners can help lower BAC levels.
Fact: This is untrue. Most breath spray contains traces of alcohol and other active ingredients that may lead to a higher reading.
