GARDAI TO REVIEW DRINK DRIVING FIGURES FOR FEARS OF ERRORS IN PULSE SYSTEM

Gardaí have confirmed they’re reviewing information they’ve been receiving from drink driving checkpoints.

It follows a report in today’s Irish Times that an audit was set up after a difference was found between the number of breath tests being recorded on the Pulse system, and the number of mouthpieces being ordered for the operations.

One disposable mouthpiece is used for each motorist who is breathalysed.

A statement from Gardaí says drink driving checkpoint figures won’t be updated on their website until the review has been completed.
