C-DOT Urges Use of Personal Breathalyzers

breathalyzerTechnology may be the answer to curbing the amount of drinking and driving in Colorado. Through widespread use of personal breathalyzers, which provide an estimate of one’s blood-alcohol level, people across the state will have the ability to make safe and responsible decisions when they’re drinking. And with ride-hailing apps, drinkers can get around safely and avoid impaired driving altogether. The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is partnering with Alcohoot, one of the leading personal breathalyzer brands, and Uber, the largest ride-hailing service in the world, to promote and demonstrate how technology is helping people make safe and responsible decisions when they drink. Even if an individual has only had a few drinks, it doesn’t mean it’s safe to drive. Research has shown that the group most at risk of driving impaired, 21- to 35-year-old males, do not think a few drinks can impair their ability to drive.
