              Is it really true, that American police tells you to say the ABC backwards? I laughed out loud because I thought that's a joke ☺🤔

                                        I once chugged a beer and then passed a breathalyzer test twice only like 5 minutes later. Let me add I was under age at the time so I had to blow zeroes to pass.

                                          Things like this are why I'm terrified of the cops. I'm epileptic, and sometimes I have seizures where I'm walking around, and talking, and interacting with my environment, but I'm unconscious. I'm not in control of my body. I'm not able to speak coherently, I have no coordination so I'm stumbling around saying nonsense things, and occasionally I get violent. Another thing about this is because I'm unconscious, I can't follow instructions. Doctors have a hard time recognizing these seizures. One of my anti seizure meds is classified as a narcotic, and another one can cause a false positive for benzodiazepines. That happened to me once and treated me as an overdose. By the time they considered it may have been a seizure, I'd been seizing for 26 hours and didn't know my own name. Those are the doctors. If I'm running around throwing lawn chairs or whatever, I could be up to my eyeballs in medical ID bracelets, but cops aren't going to think about epilepsy and I'm completely fucked

                                            Retired cop here. Worked 20 years third shift. While demonstrating field sobriety tests, I struggled holding my leg out in front of me for 10 seconds while living off of 3 hours of sleep within 24 hours. The horizontal gaze nystagmus test was always the proof.

                                              Breathalyzers cannot be used in a court of law. All they are, are indicators. Trust me. I know for a fact.

Hadn't been drinking AT ALL. I don't like drunk drivers. I've hardly ever drank. I had to convince the officer I have no balence and I have short term memory. He let me off. I was having issues with panic disorder that night.

And the bullshit lawyer that we hired promised that he was going to do do diligence to make sure that the equipment was up to code and accurate but the lazy piece of shit didn’t do it and still took thousands of dollars from us and there’s no way in hell that that breathalyzer was correct or I would’ve been dead from alcohol poisoning if I actually had consumed as much as that bullshit breathalyzer said that I did. But nobody fucking cares it’s all about money the court wanted money DMV wanted money the lawyer wanted money nobody fucking cares the lawyer didn’t even do his due fucking diligence I should sue the fucking lawyer for malpractice I’m not even gonna watch anymore of this because it makes me so fucking angry that I spent so much money when I know 100% that the breathalyzer test that was given to me was bogus and bullshit not to mention that the fucking sheriff put me in the front seat of a car handcuffed without a seatbelt on in the middle of January in a snowstorm and nobody had any problem with that even though our seatbelts a fucking law in NY?!?!?!?

So when he said 30,000 judges had to throw out the breathalyzer results had me confused 🤷‍♂️ can anyone help me understand?

And it's pretty widely known in my town that if an officer tests a substance for drugs 100% of the time it comes back positive. Those little blue pouches will go off on Krispy Kreme glaze and say it's meth. In America it comes down to just avoiding officers at all cost. They don't care about the law they just throw everything at the wall and hope it sticks.

Is a breathalyzer test enough to get a DUI in the US?
