Beware drivers under the influence – Four Transport Officers now certified breathalyzer Master Trainers

Posted: Saturday, November 13, 2021. 1:41 pm CST.

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Four Department of Transport officers became Belize’s first certified breathalyzer Master Trainers after taking a course in Colorado, United States, according to the Government of Belize Press Office.

In an effort to reduce the number of drivers under alcohol influence on Belize’s roads, the Ministry of Economic Development’s Second Road Safety Project handed over 26 portable breath alcohol testing instruments popularly known as breathalyzers and 5,000 mouthpieces to the Department of Transport last July. The reason why the officers were trained in the use of the breathalyzers in Denver, Colorado, by professionals at LifeLoc Technologies, the manufacturers of the breathalyzers.

The officers are Chief Transport Officer Dian Vasquez, Operations Officer Peter Williams, and Traffic Wardens Roman Martinez and Cesar Muschamp. The Department of Transport said the four will now train their staff and staffs of other related organizations.

The Government of Belize received a loan from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) in 2019 specifically for Belize’s Second Road Safety Project. “This collaborative effort of the Government of Belize and CDB supports interventions to build the country’s road safety management capacity,” said the Press Office release.

The breathalyzer training course looked at:

1. Reasonable Suspicion, to determine a subject’s sobriety
2. Effects of alcohol and drugs on the human body
3. Proper operation of the FC 20BT Breathalyzer
4. Calibration of FC 20BT Breathalyzer
5. US DOT policy and procedures, and relevant statutes
