Alco-Sense products are the ideal morning after solution, if you go out and drink 4 pints of lager or 3 glasses of wine then it can take up to 12 hours for the alcohol to completely leave your system. So if you finish drinking at midnight, then you will still be over your drink drive limit at midday. You are unable to tell if you are OK to drive again, but with the Alco-Sense breathalyser you can find out your current alcohol limit. The Alco-Sense breathalysers are pocket sized, are no bigger than a mobile phone and give results in seconds, which means it can be used at any time and anywhere. On average around 3,000 people are killed or seriously injured each year during drink drive accidents. With nearly 1 in 6 of all deaths on the road involving driver who are over the legal alcohol limit. The legal limit in the UK is 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood, with people that drive at twice the legal alcohol level are 50 times more likely to be involved in a fatal car crash.
The Alco-Sense Breathalysers work by measuring the concentration of alcohol vapour in your breath. The amount of alcohol evaporating from the lungs is a direct proportion to the amount of alcohol in your blood stream, which makes it possible to accurately judge your level of intoxication. With a possible 12 month ban, up to £5,000 fine and up to 6 months in prison, it makes sense to have one of these breathalysers to check your limit before you drive.
