On average 3,000 people are killed or seriously injured each year in drink drive collisions, and nearly 1 in 6 of all deaths on the road involve drivers who are over the legal alcohol limit. The Alco-Sense Breathalysers are designed to let you know your alcohol blood level, so you know when you can and cannot drive. The Alco-Sense Breathalysers work by measuring the concentration of alcohol vapour in your breath. The amount of alcohol evaporating from the lungs is directly proportional to the amount of alcohol in your blood stream, which makes it possible to accurately judge you level of intoxication.
You are personally unable to know when you are fit to drive after drinking alcohol, there are many factors involved, such as the type of alcohol, your weight, your gender, your age and your food intake. People who decide to drive when they are at twice the legal alcohol limit are 50 times more likely to be involved in a fatal car crash. Those that do have accidents can face up to a minimum 12 month driving ban, up to 6 months in prison and up to £5,000 fine. Manor Pharmacy have small, portable breathalysers from Alco-Sense, starting at £5.99, all with free delivery, making them the ideal morning after breathalyser.
