State Police Rolling Out A Mobile Breathalyzer Truck
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — State police are rolling out a new tool to get drunk drivers off the road.
Alex DeMetrick reports, it puts part of a police station on wheels.
It’s the first of its kind in Maryland: A mobile breath alcohol testing truck.
“It’s going to streamline the process for arresting officers as well as those that are arrested for impaired driving offenses,” says Sgt. Corey Steffy, of the Maryland State Police.
Here’s how. Right now, when a driver is believed to be under the influence, a field sobriety check is done. Fail it, and the officer must drive the suspect back to the station for a breathalyzer test. But the new truck takes the breathalyzer to the street.
