This coming New Years Eve, California DUI check points are rumored to begin the use of an Instant Drug Test system known as the ‘Dräger DrugTest® 5000’. This drug tester that is only available to Law Enforcement can detect amphetamines, designer amphetamines, opiates, cocaine and metabolites, benzodiazepines, cannabinoids and methadone almost instantly.
In just a few minutes, this quick & painless drug test can be administered by law enforcement at DUI check points anywhere.
Here is how the test is administered: The donor will place the Drager 5000 collector inside his or her mouth and, by using a sideways motion between the cheek and gum, takes an oral fluid sample. As soon as sufficient fluid has been gathered, the built-in indicator will turn blue and the test cassette can be handed back to the Officer.
With all the new drug & alcohol detection technologies available, this is just another reminder; do no not drink and drive.
