Is there anything I can take that will remove the alcohol from my breath, so that I can cheat the breathalyser test?
There are many myths and legends about various devices and materials that are supposed to remove alcohol from your breath – such as chewing chlorophyll chewing gum or cat litter; or sucking a lemon, a copper coin or an aluminium lollipop. But none of these work!You should also take care when even considering trying to adopt one of these tactics if required to take a breath test. Such an action – even though it doesn’t work, but you adopted it in the belief that it did – could be regarded by the Police and later the prosecuting authorities as an attempt to pervert the course of justice. And the penalties for conviction of this offence are likely to be very serious indeed.
