BREATHALYZER SITE: Website Shows Test Results

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The State Crime Lab has launched a new tool allowing you to keep tabs on drunk drivers.

The new website tracks and publishes the results of breathalyzer tests taken on Iowa roads.

The tests come in to the crime lab electronically.  The data is stripped of personally information and published for all to see.

Creators say this information is already out there, but the new website puts it all in one place for the public, attorneys or anyone else to see.

The site also allows you to check up on officers to make sure they are keeping up with training on the equipment and whether or not the breathalyzers are working properly. 

The website took about four years to be developed and is being paid for with a grant.
