How We Can Help
With our breathalyzer giveaway, we hope to prevent future loss of life as a result of alcohol-impaired driving. The goal is to provide more information to drivers when they’ve had too much to get behind the wheel of a vehicle. We hope that individuals that use the breathalyzer will take the time to test themselves before they start the car. If the driver’s BAC is too high, we want that driver to select an alternative means of transportation, possibly a designated driver, Uber, Lyft or taxi cab.
