Judges order publishing of breathalyser source code

LiveAmmo Security Blog: Drunk drivers granted access to breathalyser source code

If only I was able to be granted the source code for the laser detector that incorrectly clocked me over the speed limit...

I like when judges don't treat technology as infallible. In my case, there was not any argument that could detract from the "evidence" , even the likely EMI!

Oh, and let's also demand the same for our voting machines!

"A panel of judges in the Florida county of Sarasota has granted a request by a group of over 150 citizens accused of drink-driving to view the source code of the breathalyser that was used to determine their breath alcohol levels.

Attorneys for the defendants had filed a motion to review the source code for the Intoxilyzer 5000 breathalyzer in October.

'The defendants have established that the source code is material to their theory of defense in these cases,' judges David Denkin, Kimberly Bonner and Judy Goldman wrote in their ruling dated 2 November.
