Whenever perceived drunk drivers in Ontario are pulled over and they fail a Breathalyzer test, they will face impaired driving charges. But these tests aren't always 100 percent accurate, and there have been several instances when a breath test provided false readings and the accused driver actually wasn't impaired at all. It is incumbent upon police to conduct any roadside tests properly and legally. Such should have been the case in the recent arrest of a 48-year-old man facing impaired…
