KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -
For decades police have used breathalyzers to tell if someone is too drunk to drive, but this old tool is getting an update in Kansas City.
Breathalyzers are normally built to last about 10 years. The Kansas City Police Department is using some that are nearly twice as old, which makes their new equipment all the more welcome.
Officials say it was tough to maintain the old machines. When they broke, spare parts were hard to come by.
At one DUI checkpoint over the weekend, the new units helped officers make 15 DUI arrests. Read more here. They also caught one person with marijuana and another with PCP.
The cars stopping also got a clear message of why police take driving drunk so seriously.
A sign along the road noted that the checkpoint was dedicated to the memory of Michael Chou, a crime scene investigator killed in July by an alleged drunk driver.
