Having a couple of drinks and being “a little bit over” means you can still lose your driver’s licence, find your car is impounded, cop a hefty fine and have to fit an interlock device.
To help you get through this Spring Racing Festival here are 5 tips to follow to ensure you keep your licence and still have a great time.
When selecting a personal breathalyser, look for one with a fuel-cell sensor as they are more accurate and ensure it shows the BAC with an accuracy of +/-.005%. It should also be certified to Australian Standard AS3547.
Any police force is sure to have a blitz on, especially around Melbourne Cup time, so ensure you aren’t among the hundreds of drink drivers picked up following a major sporting event.
All AlcoSense personal breathalysers from Andatech are slim and lightweight and fit into the palm of your hand. They also come with a lifetime guarantee*. Prices start from just $219, which is a low-cost and valuable insurance policy that takes the guesswork out of knowing your BAC reading — before the police pull you over to test it for themselves!
Note: BAC refers to blood alcohol concentration or blood alcohol content and describes the percentage of alcohol present in an individual’s bloodstream at a particular point in time. It is the key variable that determines whether law enforcement can legally arrest a driver for impairment.
* A three-year warranty is extendable up to a lifetime as long as the unit is calibrated every six months. This is provided under the ‘AlcoSense Guarantee’, which applies to all Andatech breathalysers. //www.andatechdistribution.com.au/pages/alcosense-guarantee
