Pennsylvania State Police are now using blood rather than breath testing to catch DUI offenders.
It started in December 2012 when a Dauphin County judge ruled breathalyzer machines could not be considered accurate beyond a .15 reading. The ruling led to the dismissal of breathalyzer evidence in several DUI cases in Dauphin County. The Dauphin County DA's office asked the state Superior Court to overturn the county judge's ruling. If the Superior Court upholds it, it could void breathalyzer evidence in pending DUI cases across the state.
