False positives occur on DWI breathalyzer tests more often than you might think. Breathalyzer testing equipment always comes with its margin of error, and the test is administered by a person who is not infallible. A lesser-known potential cause of a false positive on a DWI test is the diet of the person being tested.

If you’ve been arrested and charged with DWI, one of the biggest dilemmas you will likely face is whether to tell your employer about it–and if so, what you should say.

If you have multiple DWIs, you’re at risk for a host of consequences, including unemployment, loss of driving privileges, higher insurance rates, and jail time–not to mention an increased chance of causing injury or death to yourself and others. The best way to break this cycle is to understand its root causes and then take tangible steps to disrupt the cycle.
