Alcohol tests then and now

Since 1953: Preventing Accidents with Alcohol Screening

For decades there was no measuring process available to determine a driver’s level of intoxication quickly and reliably. In 1953, after a party the department manager had an idea: It must be possible to measure alcohol levels through the breath – using Dräger-Tubes. The first attempt is a success. It is possible for the first time to objectively determine with a simple breath test if and to what extent a subject is under the influence of alcohol, without having to conduct a blood test.
