Why don't law enforcement agencies in the US use breath-analysers to accurately check drivers' blood alcohol levels?

While watching "Cops" tonight, I saw a police officer give a sobriety test that involved the suspect having to walk in a straight line. This seems kinda antiquated. Why not have breath testing devices? (And on a side note, is such a sobriety test admissible as evidence in a drink-driving offence?)
