How much time between breathalyzer tests?
I live in a halfway house I return from work just before 3 in the morning. They breathalyze to me because my eyes were red after working almost a 16-hour day. The first test came back .23 so they did another test the second one came back as .26. That come back is .25. I asked for them to redo it they declined I asked the sheriff that was there if he could use his he said he didn't want to get in the middle.
