  • Breathalyzer tests are given as a chemical test when you are pulled over on suspicion for DWI.
  • There is usually be a delay between the time you are initially pulled over and the time they administer the test, which can be up to two hours.
  • This delay can result in a false positive rate because of the amount of time it takes for the alcohol to be released into the blood stream.
