The Intoxilyzer 5000 is one of the most commonly used breath machines in the United States. It is used for DUI testing in Pennsylvania as well as all over the country and, in a nutshell, it’s a piece of crap. It is not accurate and not even specific to alcohol. In fact, a group of defense in Minnesota are challenging the use of the Intoxilyzer 5000 in court.
