Keychain Breathalyzer: Alcohawk Micro-Digital

Alcohawk Micro-Digital BreathalyzerAs strange as it sounds, it can be tough to find someone willing to be the designated driver. Sure, at the beginning of the night, it's easy vow that you'll sit around and drink soda while your friends get progressively plowed, but when push comes to shove not everyone has the willpower.

"C'mon, I'm fine to drive." You've heard it before, and maybe you've even said it, when the blood alcohol told a different story. Yeah, you feel fine to drive, but are you legal? The last thing you need is to see those blue lights spinning in your rear view. At the end of the night it's important to be safe, and now you can let people prove they're sober (or prove it to yourself) before getting behind the wheel.

We found the Alcohawk keychain breathalyzer at Amazon for just such a situation. Get your own Alcohawk keychain breathalyzerand always have a blood alcohol tester nearby when you're deciding whether a cab is in order.

That's a fair point. Like many things, it is a two edged sword. You mention a potentially very positive use. That is a good thing.

Conversely I've seen portable breathalyzers used as a form of competition. Imagine "Animal House" with a portable breathalyzer: "Woo! I'm 0.25!" These, naturally, are the same people I mock for drinking natty lite as I enjoy my 12 year old single malt, or something of similar ilk. :-)

Yeah, we know they can be pretty inaccurate, but we also know (don't ask us how) that people can be pretty belligerent when they're in their cups. Maybe a wildly inaccurate breathalyzer test is just what some people need to convince them not to get behind the wheel, rather than trying to wrestle them to the ground to get their keys away from them... Any thoughts?

The problem with portable/field breathalyzers is that they are wildly inaccurate. Hell, station-side full unit breathalyzers can be wildly inaccurate, but portable ones are even more so.
