By December 2015, every law enforcement agency in the state of Georgia must switch to a new type of Breathalyzer. That's according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
Houston County Sheriff's office already got a head start. This new machine makes the process much more interactive.
"You can see on this one is the breath going in it," said Lieutenant Bradley Stone.
That's just one of the new features that come with the Intoxilyzer 9000, and the name isn't the only cool thing about it. The device comes with touch LCD screen.
Stone thinks the new device is much easier to use than the old one.
"This machine doesn't keep anything internally, no results or anything like that," said Stone. Instead, he has to manually log the results. but with this new device, technology does the work.
