With so many options available to make it home after a night out, being able to test your blood alcohol level is imperative to making the right decision. It’s not hard to catch a ride with friends or Uber your way home. So why run the risk of paying thousands of dollars and possible jail time all because you just weren’t sure?
A personal breathalyzer gives the you confidence to make the right decision
Compared to the cost of dealing with a DUI, personal breathalyzers are the way to go. Not only do they keep you out of legal and financial trouble, they keep the streets safe. They help you drive home with confidence knowing you’re under the legal limit. But be warned, if you are pulled over, the courts go by the officer’s reading, not yours. Although both readings will be similar, it’s not worth it to push your luck. If you’re close to the legal limit, it’s probably better to catch a ride with someone else.
They’re only getting easier
Technology has driven the market on self testers to a place they’ve never been before. The prices drop as quality and accuracy improve. There are many devices, and even smartphone apps, that can help track your level. And most are so discreet, you don’t have to feel uncomfortable about testing yourself. They can be stored easily in your purse or pocket and can be utilized quickly and inconspicuously. Testing has become so simple and unobtrusive, there’s no reason not to before getting behind the wheel. The worst thing you could do is put yourself or someone else in danger.
