Would You Consider Buying a Small, Portable Breathalyzer to Measure Blood Alcohol Content if it Were $20 and Fit on Your Keychain?

With occasions like Valentine's Day and school graduations coming up, it's no secret that many will celebrate in the form of a drink or two. And while toasting with a glass of wine is typically not a big deal, things get a lot more serious when driving is entered into the equation.

Whether you've been in the car with a driver under the influence or felt a little hesitant driving after a couple drinks yourself, we wanted to gauge your own experiences and opinions about drinking and driving. So let's get to it with this Drinking and Driving Survey. And don't forget to be safe out there, folks.

    I dont drink and drive but there have been times Ive wondered if I was good enough to drive. It'd just be interesting. Wouldnt stand up in court, though.
  • 001 2013/02/14 19:10:20
    I don't drink alcohol, so it'd be pretty useless.
  • Hellcat 2013/02/14 15:04:16
    I personaly do not drink unless I'm at home and I will not drive under any circumstanses after I start. I would buy one to have with me for anyone I was with and cared about who even thought about driving after drinking. This would not only save ives u help prevent DWI/DUI.

    like you have been drinking and now that you have this device on you, you can make an informed decision of driving or not driving...i think thats kind of exercising some kind of control on oneself.
  • Riobhca 2013/02/13 19:32:30
    I don't drink.

    Nope. I don't drink and I have enough junk on my keychain as it is!
  • Tiffany 2013/02/13 05:17:01
    I'm not really a drinker. Whenever I'd have a drink I'm not driving or planning to go anywhere. For me it would be a waste of money. For those who would use it would be a good idea to have.
  • Nuke 2013/02/13 03:53:18
    Because I don't drink very often and if I do I usually stop at one, two at the most and that's with a nice dinner or special occasion.
    I don't drink enough to make this worth it. lol

    Don't drink more than twice a year and even then it's very little over many hour. There's just no point.

    BTW, what's with all the Sodahead Living questions about DUI's and related topics recently? It feels like they're priming the pump for something.

    That's gross.

    besides the obvious driving aid, it could be useful in a bar before approaching what you thought was attractive. Simply blow into the device to see how intact your judgement is at the time.

    I refuse to drink any further than I care to crawl to my bed!!!

    I'm not a drinker, but I think it would be a good "just in case" thing to have if you have friends you are deeply concerned about
    one negative thing I can see happening is young ppl thinking it is funny to see what their alcohol level is at instead of taking it as something serious
  • Sophie 2013/02/12 06:04:52
    Sure why not. Beats the hell out of a DUI, and I am small so a few drinks can put me over the limit even if I don't feel it.
  • Sick of... Sophie 2013/02/19 00:43:00
    Sick of the BS
    Exactly what happened to me sad to say. I thought I was being responsible and had one drink per hour and when I left the bar I felt completely sober... I only weigh 130 lbs... welllll a cop pulled me over because I had a headlight out and I was completely shocked when he told me I blew .15!!!!! It was a complete wake up call for me but I'm still boggled by it considering I'm typsy after half a beer. Now if I have a beer I give myself 2 hrs or I will have a small beer with dinner. Since then I have wanted to buy a breathalyzer and reinact that night. Normally I am a beer drinker but earlier that night I did have wine so I wonder if it was still in my system even though I swear I felt as sober as I do sitting here. Lesson learned thats for sure! :/

    The only time I drink is when it's hotter than blazes and I'm mowing. I don't think BO has his force giving MUIs yet. Besides, I never have more than 1 per hour.

    I don't do a lot of drinking and driving so I don't really need one.
  • Cal 2013/02/12 00:40:45
    waste of money
  • David 2013/02/12 00:15:27
    Don't need it as I rarely drink more than 16oz of homebrew (whether beer or hard cider) in any one day, and that at home.

    It could come in handy, but I dont have a need for one.
  • Jasmine 2013/02/11 23:20:01
    I don't drink but that's just unnecessary
  • Elz 2013/02/11 22:26:10
    I don't drink like that anyway.
  • zero 2013/02/11 22:10:34
    I did buy one. I don't know how accurate it is, but it works.

    If you are concerned enough to think you need to check then you should not be driving.

    when i am aloud to drink, i do it anyways, i would want to know when enough is enough
  • Warfinge 2013/02/11 14:59:26
    If I were still drinking, you bet.

    I don't drink,so it'd be of no value to me!
  • Dustin 2013/02/11 08:14:47
    Would be awesome also could force your friends to be smart. By saying hey look your felony level drunk. Because most drunk drivers swear they are not drunk. And even if friend tackles them hides keys and offers a ride they will refuse. The only way I have succeeded was pulling wires in car so it wouldnt start. Forcing them to ask for a ride under the pretense car is broke they are not drunk.
  • ToyaMurphy 2013/02/11 06:19:45
    I don't drink so it's useless to Me.
  • TKramar 2013/02/11 05:48:30
    No reason to--I don't drink.
  • jayshawksnotboth 2013/02/11 05:38:40
    I don't drink. So I'll breathe into it, see that it will always say .00, and smile.
  • KarenInKenoshaWisconsin 2013/02/11 05:07:19
    I don't drink, so...
