Companies market blood alcohol testers

People no longer have to be law enforcement officials to be able to use blood alcohol testers. In 2013, companies began to develop low-cost devices that test blood alcohol levels, which could be available as early as September. Individuals in different states, including California, could purchase these devices. Some equipment can be attached to mobile devices. Along with information on their blood alcohol levels, drinkers can often get information on restaurants to go to eat after a night of drinking from some devices. These pieces of equipment have the potential to help people to know when they have reached blood alcohol levels over the legal limit, stopping them from drunk driving.
