Drinking while watching the footy? Then don’t drive until your breath test is legal



Carrying a personal breathalyser is the logical way to handle the finals footy season if you want to keep your licence and not end up with a huge fine.
 
All drivers must be under .05 to drive legally so it you’ve had one or two beers more than you should, then drink non-alcoholic fluids and keep testing your breath until you are able to drive legally.
 
One AFL fan was caught drink driving after the semi-final at the MCG and was way over the legal limit. The man's vehicle was impounded for 30 days at a cost of $983 and his driver's licence was suspended. Police expect to charge him with drink driving.
 
Andatech is a leader in personal breathalysers with its new super light-weight AlcoSense Elite 3 breathalyser selling for just over $200, making it a wise investment for anyone who values their licence.
 
The Australian-designed AlcoSense breathalyser weighs just 83 grams, which includes the batteries, and has a fuel cell sensor that provides fast, accurate alcohol-specific readings within 10 seconds of taking a test. BAC results are provided to three decimal places with an accuracy of +/-.005% BAC.
 
It is tested and certified for its accuracy and reliability meeting Australian Standard AS3547.
 
It also has a fast mode, which provides a positive or negative alcohol reading within five seconds and is perfect for P-plate drivers who need a zero-alcohol reading before driving and therefore aren’t concerned with a specific BAC reading.
 
The Elite 3 comes with its own zip pouch that protects the unit and conveniently stores the five mouthpieces provided with the device. It has a three-year warranty, which is extendable to a lifetime*.
 
Andatech has a wide range of personal breathalysers priced from $199 to $279 that can be purchased from www.andatech.com.au
 
A discount of 10% is offered on all breathalysers during September. Add the promo code ‘footyfever’ at the checkout.

Note: BAC refers to blood alcohol concentration or blood alcohol content and describes the percentage of alcohol present in an individual’s bloodstream at a particular point in time. It is the key variable that determines whether law enforcement can legally arrest a driver for impairment.
 
* A three-year warranty is extendable up to a lifetime as long as the unit is calibrated every six months. This is provided under the ‘AlcoSense Guarantee’, which applies to all Andatech breathalysers. https://www.andatechdistribution.com.au/pages/alcosense-guarantee
