Opposition questions breath test speed equipment in court
The ruling comes as several state lawmakers have called for a federal investigation of breath testing in California. Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Los Angeles) said in a statement that a l바카라aw passed last year allows for more than 40 different ways to check drivers’ respiration.
He called on the U.S. Transportation Security Administration to investigate whether California’s breath test is reliable, but noted that there were thousands of individuals who died of heart attacks and strokes because of faulty breath-test equipment.
California Highway Patrol Officer Brandon Yarbrough, who helped lead the investigation into the deaths of Alvira Garcia, 56, and Francisco Paredes, 67, stopped responding to 더킹카지노911 calls after they called in May 2015 to report they had been dragged under a truck moving on a country road near a shopping center in San Pedro, according to documents from the investigation. They were found to have died of severe hypoxia, an indication that their lungs have been damaged from a lack of oxygen, asphyxia, or other conditions, said documents.
California has a law that allows for breath testing if the test can detect a breath in excess of 104 milliliters of air, or about 15 to 25 percent of the recommended limit, Yarbrough wrote in a report.
He said California law requires the agency to make a reasonable effort to stop drivers who fail. In the Paredes and Garcia cases, the vehicles were reported for speed violations, he said.
“The problem of impaired drivers, the reason drivers fail breath tests in California, isn’t due to illegal speeding,” Yarbrough wrote. “It is due to the fact that California’s state vehicle and registration requirements prevent the agency from conducting breath test stops that would detect more of a problem with impaired drivers.”
Suffolk Superior Court Judge Nancy Hesse on Friday ruled the Paredes’ deaths should not be ruled a heart attack or other cause of death because neither body was found lying face down in the road.
However, her ruling also pointed to a apronxpotential weakness in the state’s law: “the law should not simply prohibit certain types of breath testing,” said Hesse, “but also require those test results to be made available to the public.”
Hesse said she would issue a “summary judgment.” The trial judge in the case, Steven M. Leiter, had scheduled the hearing for Dec. 13.
