Breathalyzer

Going home on Friday night, I was pulled over at a road block and had to do the Breathalyzer. he smelled alcohol and insisted I do the breathalyzer so I was ok , I blew and and was let go.

After blowing, it showed the number 24. I have no idea what that means? I doubt that's 0.24, cause I would have easily been arrested but what does that 24 stand for anyone know?

.05+ is a warn, .08+ is a fail (the ASD's are actually set so if you blow a warn or fail, it is actually higher than a. 05/08 respectiveily. you blew a .024

And it was not the Datamaster "breathalyzer" at roadside. That is back at the Cop Shop. You were tested on a roadside screening devices...or RSD for short. Big difference. If it had been .240 mg% then you would have been more than 3 times the legal limit....your reading was just under 1/2 the permitted .05 limit.
