A video surfaced on social media which showed cops finding an error in the breathalyser test and it could lead to innocent people paying the price.
On Tuesday, a video was posted on social media which showed cops taking a breathalyser test before and after eating a hot cross bun and the results differed.
During the first test, the cop's alcohol reading was 0.0, however after eating a hot cross bun his result differed - reading a 0.21.
Tumi Sole posted the video on his Twitter page, captioning it:
"We’re in trouble! Especially during the Easter Weekend with Hot Cross Buns. Surely there must be some malfunction here? If this is true, imagine the unlawful arrests! You eat 3 of these buns, you’re done! Can the authorities clarify please!"
Briefly.co.za gathered the footage sparked a massive reaction online and tweeps were quick to share their views.
Twitter user @mjfoureal commented:"This is dangerous, sober people gonna be locked up left right and centre. have these machines been tested or we are the test dummies?"
Another tweep, @MongezyM, added: "Look on the bright side, we at least have a new scapegoat when stopped at a roadblock. 'I just had hot cross buns Mr. Officer'"
