A PORTABLE BREATH TEST (PBT)
A portable breath test, commonly referred to as PBT, will be offered on the scene prior to arrest.
✋ First things first— PBTs are not certified chemical tests.
If you are suspected of OWI, YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO SUBMIT TO PBT.
Certified chemical breath tests are admissible in court, a PBT is not.
Moreover, there are currently no sanctions against individuals who refuse a PBT.
So why do officers offer PBT tests?
Simple, a PBT will be used by the officer to establish probable cause for the arrest and a certified chemical breath test.
