Man fails roadside breathalyser test after using hand sanitiser

Melanie Earley Reporter from Central Leader

Kia ora neighbours, an Auckland man was “shocked” to learn he had failed a breathalyser test due to using hand sanitiser before being pulled over.

Ben Shivas had been driving home from work on Thursday evening when he arrived at a police checkpoint in Herne Bay.

Shivas, 26, was surprised to learn he had failed the roadside test despite not having drunk any alcohol that day.

“It was a bit of a shock, but I knew it had to be an error,” he said. “The officer taking the test questioned me about the result, and when I told her I hadn’t had any alcohol she asked if I’d used hand sanitiser recently.”
