Random Breath Testing: Did My Cop Stuff up?
So I was at a wedding on Saturday and from 5pm to 10pm, I had six beers (Lashes, yum) and one shot.
Being an engineer, I entered it into an app to calculate my BAC, which said around 0.04 when I left, quite close to the limit, but not over.
Then after about 10 minutes, as luck would have it, I got stopped for a random breath test. The cop does the usual, asks for my licence, asks if I've had anything to drink, to which I respond "yes".
He then wants to do a breath test, but then decides to do the counting test first, even though we both assume it's a foregone conclusion.
I count, he looks at his machine and then says "You're free to go", I reply "Really?", he just says "Yes".
So did the cop stuff up, was his machine faulty or am I a strange human specimen?
