A new viral video shows how eating hot cross buns can lead to drivers failing an immediate breath test.
Footage was uploaded to the Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls’ Facebook page showing founder Heather Jones chomping into the Easter bun.
She then blows into a breathalyser and the reading shoots up to 0.018.
“If you’re driving a truck, be very careful,” she says. “Be really careful this Easter.”
In New Zealand, the legal limit for drivers aged over 20 years is 0.05. For drivers under 20, the limit is zero.
But New Zealand police say anyone thinking about blaming an innocent bun for failing a breath test needs to think again.
“New Zealand Police uses both screening and evidentiary breath testing to confirm a positive breath alcohol screening test to a precise level,” a police spokesperson told Newshub.
