Buy a Breathalyzer to Avoid DUI or DWI

Buy a breathalyzer

What’s drinking and driving called in your state? DUI? DWI? Whatever it’s called, it’s a dangerous business. You could easily kill yourself in a car crash, or even worse, you could cause the deaths of totally innocent victims. If that happened, think of all the lives that would be ruined – yours, the persons’ lives you ended, and the lives of all their families and friends.

Even if you don’t cause a wreck, a DUI or DWI charge would not be pleasant. You could lose your license, pay a huge fine, have to do community service, and have to take defensive driving courses at a DUI school. And that's for a DUI first offense. For a second DUI offense, you might even have to serve time. You might even lose your job because of the charges. There are some powerful DUI consequences for both a first offense DUI, and even more so with a second offense DUI!

No one plans to drive drunk. The problem is that drinking affects your judgment. When you’re too drunk to drive, you sometimes don’t think you’re too drunk to drive. It’s the ten-feet-tall-and-bulletproof mentality. You go out with friends, have a couple of drinks, and think there’s no problem with getting behind the wheel. So how do you really know if you’ve had too much alcohol to drive safely? How can you be sure to avoid a DUI or DWI, and worse?

Another scenario: You're at home watching the game and having a couple of brews. You run out of cheetohs, so you decide to drive to the 7-11 for more. But are you safe to drive?

Enter the handy personal DUI breathalyzer. Yep, anyone can purchase one. They aren’t just for law enforcement, anymore. The mini breathalyzer models are small and discreet, so that females can keep one in their purse. Guys can keep a pocket breathalyzer in their jacket pocket or in their glove compartment. Heck, there’s even a keychain DUI breathalyzer! How handy is that? There's also a home breathalyzer that would be the perfect answer to your cheetohs situation. Avoiding a DUI or DWI has never been easier than with a personal breathalyzer. You can make an online breathalyzer purchase without leaving your home.

How does a breath alcohol detector work? Just like the ones the cops have. You breathe into it, and it measures your blood alcohol content. It gives you an accurate reading so that you know exactly how your body has metabolized the alcohol you’ve imbibed. If it’s too high, you call a cab or call a friend. In essence, you conduct you own breathalyzer test. No more worrying about a DUI or a DWI. Most importantly, no more being a danger on the road!

Below are several of the most popular types of personal breathalyzers, in a range of prices. How much is it worth to you to avoid DUI or DWI?

Find a breathalyzer for sale below that best suits your needs. The digital breathalyzer is super easy to read, and the keychain breathalyzer will help you keep up with the device. If you're low on cash, buy the cheap breathalyzer. Buying one could save lives!

Habee - The Boy who killed my son, is now facing Vehicular Homicide charges, and will be in jail a long long time, the worst part of this is they were friends. He must live with the What Ifs for the rest of his life. Thanks, Good Hub.

I have read about this online. A local TV station even showcased this item. Of course, the local law enforcement agency was against this. lol, guess they would lose money not being able to write tickets or money for the local jail.

But, I think is a great item for anyone to have if they go out and drink.

Great information here and gets a rate up!

It would also be a responsible ideal for local bars to have something like this on-hand. (Of course a safe way to sanitize it) When someone tries to leave the bar claiming they have not had too much, the bartender/waitress might be able to get the customer to use the machine to show them they really have had too much.

Great idea about bars keeping one on hand! I think it should be a law!
