BACtrack Select S80 Breathalyzer Professional Edition


imageYou’re out with your friends when you realize that you forgot to assign a designated driver. A couple of you have only had a beer or two, but if you got pulled over would you pass a breathalyzer test? And is it really safe for you to drive? The BACtrack Select S80 Breathalyzer Professional Edition can give you these answers and make sure you are safe on the road and safe from getting a ticket for DUI or DWI. It will let you know if you have a safe driver or if you need to call a taxi.

Drinking and Driving

Before I go any further, I have to say that drinking and then driving is inappropriate, not to mention illegal. People should choose one person as a designated driver who will not drink alcohol or everyone should agree to take a taxi or limo. Driving under the influence of alcohol is irresponsible and could cause injury to you, others in your car, and others on the road. The driving limit for DUI in all 50 states is 0.08% BAC. As an example, a 175 person who has 5 drinks over 3 hours will have a blood alcohol concentration that will land in the 0.08% and up zone. That same person who has 4 drinks over 3 hours is also impaired with .05%-.07%. These are all unlawful levels. If your blood alcohol content is .05-.07% you are 5 times more likely to have an accident if you get behind the wheel. At .08% your chances of having an accident increase by 25%.

In Other Words

Use this device to make sure you are safe to drive, not to avoid the police or try to evade them.
