Making the right choices
Did you know between 1,250 and 1,500 people are killed and more than 63,000 are injured each year in Canada due to impairment-related crashes *1. Not to mention that crashes involving alcohol consumption remain the leading cause of criminal death in Canada. You can't always imagine the consequences related to driving under the influence, for example, will it affect your job if you lose your license? Have you thought about the risks of an accident or the impact of having a criminal record?
We can sometimes have a lack of good judgement when under the influence and this is where the breathalyzer test comes in handy. It is the best prevention method; easy to use and its precise.
What is breathalyzer?
A breathalyzer allows you to know whether the permitted alcohol limit is exceeded or whether it is safe to drive. Throughout Canada, the maximum legal BAC for fully licensed drivers is 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 milliliters of blood (0.08). Driving with BAC over 0.08 is a criminal offence. Note that in Ontario, you will also face serious consequences if your BAC is between 0.05 and 0.08. This is commonly referred to as the “warn range.”
This same law indicates a zero-tolerance policy for new drivers and young people under the age of 21.
How to choose your breathalyzer?
Breathalyzers have been around for almost 50 years. Today, they are commonly found everywhere, in bars, and even in pharmacies. The best detectors are those that have an electrochemical sensor like the devices used by the police. In fact, this is what our Automotive Experts recommend.
