AlcoSense Elite 2 Breathalyzer (Multi Alert Level)
- Product Review (submitted on 24 December 2014):
- I never drive when Ive been drinking (or do I ??) what about the morning after? I bet there has been more than one occasion in my life when Ive been close to the limit the next morning. So I bought one of these - especially now that the limit has lowered in Scotland (I work in scotland maybe once a month and stay in a hotel and have a couple of drinks) I did some tests when I didnt have to drive the next day. On one occasion (my big test) I drank a LOT and I was on 79 at 10:30 the next day. 80 is a fail / ban. 90 minutes later I was ok (I didnt drive all day) its a sobering thought.... especially if you go to work at 07:00 etc. Imagine being involved in an accident and hurting somebody including yourself and passengers - then finding out you were over the drink drive limit. I couldnt live with that thought.Whilst this unit has been set to turn red near 80, it still tells you your Blood Alcohol as a number, so you dont need to buy a special one if you live in scotland - but at the time I purchased it, I think they were gearing up to providing 2 options. You can send it of once a year to get it re calibrated if you are seriously concerned But I think that I'll have a better understanding of my limit much sooner.
