Would having your own breathalyzer device make you look like an alcoholic to others? If you answered yes to this question, think again. Owning a breathalyzer device highlights a driver’s level of responsibility and concern for colleagues and friends, while realizing the dangers of drinking and driving. A breathalyzer is not about you, but rather about your family, children and other drivers. Fortunately, there are portable breathalyzer devices you can invest in that can help you be a responsible driver.
BreathKey Portable Breathalyzer
This is the lightest and smallest portable breathalyzer that offers plenty of features in the highest quality. Since it is not bulky, you can easily fit it on a keychain to bring with you everywhere you go. Similar to police equipment, this device has a fuel cell alcohol sensor for accuracy. Most importantly it is FDA certified and features a durable and heavy duty battery, advanced backlit display, simple English prompts and a one button operation.
BackTrack Portable Breathalyzer
Equipped with BluFire technology the BackTrack Portable Breathalyzer offers easy, quick and accurate blood alcohol content testing. As you can bring it wherever you go due to its lightweight and portable design, you can always check your BAC levels at all times while you drink until you are sober enough to drive. Being able to test your BAC is crucial as, “The penalties for drinking and driving have become more severe, particularly for repeat offenders, who often face mandatory jail time. In many states, plea bargaining is restricted or banned in drunk-driving cases. Fines have increased and driver’s license suspensions have lengthened. It is also harder to obtain a “hardship” license that allows a person only to drive to and from work”, says The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates in Texas.
