– Don’t Get caught Over the Limit –
Driving, or operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated is not only illegal in every state in the nation, it’s also a serious offense, and a disgrace. For me it’s impossible to understand why society of the pre-70’s was almost forgiving against drivers who committed these violations by reason of intoxication. If not for women, and mothers, who put themselves on the line to make the public, and law, aware of these horrible violations to humanity, there would have been so many more lives ruined. Thankfully, Congress did act, and passed legislation in all 50 states to set a limit, or standard of intoxication. In all 50 states the current law is .08 BAC, down even lower from the previous .10. Just to put things into perspective, .10 is 1/10th of 1% of the blood in the body is now alcohol. For commercial drivers, such as limousine drivers, bus drivers and taxis, the legal limit is even lower, .04%.
Until now, people would try to remember how many they had, drink coffee, or just wait until they felt they were sober enough to walk out the door or drive, whatever your best guess was. Now that has changed, you no longer need to know when to cut off your dinner party guests. Now a company out of California has introduced an excellent product to the market, called the BACtrack. The BACtrack allows you to test a person’s BAC, or Blood Alcohol Content. The BACtrack uses the same technology the police use in their professional breathalyzer units. This is tuly a significant breakthrough for personal responsibility. This is the first time civilians have been able to self police their own drinking limit accurately.
For the responsible citizen, the BACtrack mobile is a portable, pocket sized unit which allows you to test you BAC wherever you are. So, whether you’re attending a weekend BBQ, a wedding party, or just out with friends, there is no more guess work. No need to try and remember how many you’ve had. The top of the Line BACtrack S80 was designed with a police grade fuel cell sensor for precise BAC measurement. Now there is no excuse for not invoking your designated driver or calling for a ride. You will never again have to put the life of yourself, your family, or someone else’s at risk. For the technology person, the BACtrack mobile allows you to connect your iphone 5 via wireless bluetooth. The iPhone provides you with a history and precise measurement the the measured BAC. So, if you need to record the BAC of several patients, students at a party, or several guests, your iPhone will save the data.
The BACtrack is available in 3 models,
- The Entry level BACtrack select S50,
- The BACtrack mobile and the S80 PRO version.
