Mythbusters – Is it possible to beat a Breathalyzer Test?

Last updated 7 years ago

Whether you’ve seen it on TV or have experienced it yourself, when you get pulled over for a DUI or DWI, you know that you will be given a breathalyzer test.  And while no one should be driving under the influence of alcohol, the question still arises as to whether the breathalyzer test can be beat.

There are many myths out there of possible ways to “beat” this test.  These range from chewing breath mints or onions to mask the smell in your breath, to keeping a battery in your mouth to interfere with the breathalyzer mechanism. 

To find out whether or not any of these work, check out this short excerpt from the popular TV show Mythbusters.
