After four years of testing and assessment, the Washington State Patrol rolled out its new breathalyzer machines Tuesday.
Trooper Mel Sterkel was running the new Draeger Alcotest 95-10 through its paces.
"And now the second sample," Sterkel says.
A tone in the background is the machine taking the breath sample as the media's cameras click and whirr. He breathes into a tube for about 5 seconds. That's enough to provide 1.5 liters of air, the minimum needed for a valid sample.
