The implementation of the Intoxilyzer 8000 continues to be an embarrassment to all Ohioans.  Not only is the machine rife with problems, but the Ohio Department of Health has botched both the writing of the rules of implementation.  Now they plan on shutting down the key component of the Intoxilyzer 8000 scheme, the Breath Instrument On-line Database.  The shutdown is due to complications, missing tests and disappearing data.  This raises the question as to how the Ohio Department of Health will prove that they maintain three (3) years of data/subject tests as required by law.  Likewise, they are unable to produce 3 years of records of data that was reported from the machine like: breath volume, sample attempts, breath duration, tank pressure, atmospheric pressure, etc.  Not surprisingly, this is the very information that DUI attorneys throughout Ohio were using to show the unreliability of the Intoxilyzer 8000.  It is a continuing source of shame that these rules and this machine is still in use and exacting such a heavy toll on citizens, some of whom are factually innocent of the humiliating charge of drunk driving.  When people ask why I fight for DUI I point to this continuing injustice.
