Drunk Driving: Are the Test Results Accurate?

According to various local news sources, a majority of drunk driving   alcohol tests performed by the Michigan State Police (MSP) between December 15, 2015 and April 23, 2016, were recently discovered to be inaccurate. These findings were reported in the Detroit Free Press, Detroit News, and on MLive.com. Of the 2,748 tests administered that measured BAC values above zero, a whopping 2,007 were found to have the wrong results. That's almost 3 out of 4 tests. This inaccuracy was supposedly due to the MSP Forensic Science Division's incorrect calibration model used to measure BAC levels.

When it comes to drunk driving, hundreds of drivers in Michigan die each year from alcohol-related accidents where one of the drivers had a blood-alcohol level (BAC) of .08+. The consequences to the driver can be severe, including the possibility of 15 years in prison. What many individuals do not realize is that these same consequences arise when a fatal accident occurs as the result of a driver being under the influence of marijuana. A DUI is not just a crime involving drinking and driving.
