Driving while under the influence of alcohol is a serious issue. In the United States, nearly 30 people die each day as a result of alcohol impaired drivers. Alcohol results in nearly 1/3rd of all traffic related deaths each year.
This isn’t just the result of those that consume a large amount of alcohol and drive while knowingly impaired. Accidents are frequently the result of a few drinks with dinner or at a party. Not thinking they’ve had too much to drink, people get behind the wheel and end up as a statistic.
Relying on some internal feeling to assess your level of intoxication is highly inaccurate. Basing it on the number of drinks you’ve had isn’t helpful either as so many factors play into how quickly alcohol is metabolized. The only true test is to use a breathalyzer.
Breathometer has created an innovative breathalyzer that works with your smartphone to give you an accurate measurement of your blood alcohol content. The Breeze breathalyzer connects to your smartphone wirelessly and displays the results on an app.
The Breathometer app on your smartphone instantly displays an accurate BAC reading so that you can make an informed decision. It also provides an estimate on when your BAC will return to zero. If are intoxicated and don’t have time to wait it out, the app provides easy access to call an Uber or designated driver. If a ride home isn’t possible, the app makes it easy to locate a place to stay.
As you continue to use the Breathometer, the app will track your history so that you can see your BAC over time. This gives you the information you need to make better decisions in the future so that you’re not caught intoxicated unexpectedly with no way to get back home.
UPDATE: Breathometer no longer offers a Breathalyzer and now makes products for detecting problems with oral health.
