As eating Durian just before being tested, can set off the machine, or using Listerine mouthwash, I doubt that there was anything wrong with the it.

Yeah the cops are getting worse here, have had equal bad experiences this year in bangkok. Even cops trying to steal out of a bag of my mate.

I think the way forward is to suggest/insist on a blood test at a local hospital if you are in any doubt as to the accuracy of the machine used, does anyone believe that these machines are calibrated daily before use as they should be ?

Wouldn't have happened if you hadn't been drinking and driving, would it?

Thailand has the same blood alcohol level as the EU which is 0.5 promille, nothing wrong with drinking a beer and driving.

Getting ripped off with a fake breath alcohol measuring device and jail time is however wrong, corruption is rampant.

 

You might as well say, if u didn't come to thailand you wouldn't have been ripped off.

 

1,2,3 and the thai apologist will storm this threaddddddddddddd...

Would the OP be quite as upset if he blew well over the limit but only had to pay a 5000 baht "fine" to drive away?
