The portable breath test devices are NOT certified by the State of Oklahoma and the BAC (breath alcohol concentration) numbers displayed by them cannot be used as the official number against you.
If you are arrested for DUI (Driving Under the Influence) in Oklahoma and taken to the police station, you will be requested to take the Intoxilyzer 8000 test there as well.
You DO NOT have to take any of these tests. The main thing to consider is whether or not you have had very much to drink. If you haven’t had much to drink, I advise you to not even admit to drinking.
Machines are not perfect, and these devices will be used in place of the officers judgement. It will be simple really. The officers who carry these devices will simply ask people if they have been drinking. If the person is “honest” enough to admit they have, then the officer will ask them to blow into the PBT. If you decline, you are going to jail. If you take it and test high, you are going to jail…
