Special Report on DUI Breath-Testing Program 

6a00d83451b91969e2014e8868dc7c970d-pi.jpg

In early April, Seven Days staff writer Andy Bromage broke the news that two chemists from the state's breath-testing program had raised questions about the equipment used to test drunk drivers.

Shortly after the story appeared, Gov. Peter Shumlin transferred responsibility for administering the program from the Department of Health to the Department of Public Safety, and the legislature held a hearing about the issue.

Bromage has continued to investigate the DataMaster breath testers, and today Seven Days published a follow-up story online. Bromage has uncovered a number of alleged problems with the machines.

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
