drinkers have been trying to find ingenious ways to pass a breathalizer test. these ways include sucking on a penny * Variations on the copper penny gambit: o Sucking on a nickel o Sucking on mints or cough drops o Eating garlic o Eating peanuts o Eating curry powder o Taking a very deep breath of fresh air before the test o Chewing vitamin C tablets According to urband legends all these things are false, http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_breathalyzer_penny.htm the only known way that works is not to drink over the limit. Having said that has anyone you have known passed a breathalizer test by trying some gimmick before hand? Do you believe that it is possible to fool a breathalizer test and appear sober when you are not?

No, I can imagine the breathalyser test is pretty fool proof! Though I am interested in knowing if anyone has done it before. I doont think it can be done. The only way you can try, is refuse to take it, get sent to jail, and hope your BAC has gone down, below the limit, before they give a mandatory blood test! Time, and fat content is the only thing that will get your BAC down. So if your just a little drunk, but dont want to get a ticket, you might need to go to jail, and hope they dont get to the blood test for a few hours... Depends on how desperate you are. Or you can just surrender and take the ticket!

I have friends that are in my A.A. club that have tried various things to fool them and they failed miserbaly. They were under court order to not drink and randum AU's so they went to jail most times. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I believe that the show MythBusters did a show about these myths recently as well. Funny too. You can not fool them I feel in the least. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
