Everything you need to know about breath testing in Australia

Hi All,

Was on the hunt for a breathalyser to buy my old man for Christmas and stumbled across this handy guide for anyone from Australia. I will admit I learnt a thing or two, particularly about refusing to take a breath test.

I've tried to paste the table of contents but here is the link
  1. What is a random breath test?
  2. What is blood alcohol content (BAC)?
  3. What is the Australian Blood Alcohol Limit?
  4. How much alcohol is in a standard drink?
  5. When are police allowed to breath test me?
  6. What information am I required to give during a random breath test?
  7. Can I refuse to take a breath test?
  8. What are the penalties if I refuse to take a breath test?
  9. How many breath tests can I be requested to take?
  10. If I blow a negative reading, can a police officer request a further test?
  11. Can a police officer force me to the police station for a sample?
  12. Does the police officer need to show me the breathalyser results?
  13. What are the drink driving penalties if I blow a positive reading?
  14. What is an Alcohol Interlock Device?
  15. When I get pulled over, I am going to quickly swap seats with a passenger so I donít get caught.
  16. If I am just sitting in my car on the side of the road, can police breath test me?
  17. Can a police officer breath test me if I am at hospital receiving treatment?
  18. When are police not allowed to breath test me?
  19. Can I challenge my breath test result?
  20. Iíve heard I can apply for a Work Licence, what is that?
  21. What are the different legislations in each state?
