Is the new DWI test as accurate as it needs to be?
Police departments across Texas are replacing the breath-testing machines used in DWI cases. But some are questioning whether the new device is accurate. For decades, the Intoxilyzer 5000 was the machine DWI suspects would blow into at police stations and jails throughout Texas. For a story back in 2014, Castle Hills Police demonstrated how it worked by testing a couple of our producers. But now the DPS is in the process of replacing all the 5000s with this new model — the Intoxilyzer 9000.
