B.C. police recall breathalyzers
VANCOUVER B.C. police forces announced Friday they are recalling 2,200 roadside breathalyzer devices to have them adjusted after lab tests suggested they might be giving false readings.
Victoria Police Chief Jamie Graham told a Vancouver news conference that recent RCMP lab tests found a small “margin of error” in the current devices.
As a result, the devices will be re-calibrated from .05 — the current blood-alcohol standard for roadside suspensions in British Columbia — to .06.
