The Indonesian Police have commenced using roadside breathalyzer testing in Jakarta and Central Java in order to reduce the growing number of traffic accidents linked to alcohol consumption.
Using the state-of-the-art Dräger Alcotest® 7510 the Indonesian police are able to conduct roadside evidential breath testing that conforms to the highest international standards.
The head of the Metro Jaya Traffic Police in Jakarta, Hindarsono, supervised the first use of the equipment on Saturday, December 8, 2013, when the new breath testers were deployed in three separate areas of Jakarta.
Trial testing of the equipment is also being undertaken in Central Java.
In the first night of active deployments of testing 3 drivers were netted during 3 hours trial and released because the evidence collected is still being studied by the Indonesian law enforcement and judicial community.
Bali is carefully monitoring whether or not the police will formalize the use of the Dräger Alcotest® 7510 and extend it use to other locations, such as Bali, where drunk driving is a growing problem.
