If you have been pulled over by a police officer under suspicion of driving while intoxicated (DWI), you might have been ordered during the stop to breathe into an Alco Sensor. The data that this device provides may not make or break a case, but it can bolster the charges against you.

What Is An Alco-Sensor Test?
When you are pulled over for a DWI, in most instances, an officer may ask you to take a portable breath test. We call that the Alco-Sensor test, and it is a handheld device that the officer uses to measure the blood alcohol content in your system. This is not admissible in New York State court, but it does allow the officer to determine whether you have any alcohol in your body. The Alco Sensor is another tool in the arsenal that an officer can use against you in order to ascertain that you have been driving while impaired or intoxicated.
