Impair Aware allows patrons of establishments serving alcohol to pay a small fee, blow into a straw and find out their BAC.
The Impair Aware Alcohol Level Indication System is an invention that costs drivers a dollar to use. Impair Aware allows drinkers to test their B.A.C and employs a new generation of semiconductor sensors that provide exact results. Addionally, the sensor can self-clean and be ready for the next person to use in less than 10 seconds. Impair aware comes as either a coin or a bill operated machine. The machine is about the size of a pay phone and takes about 10 seconds to use. It is very simple and easy for anyone to operate. After inserting payment, patrons simply blow into a straw and their blood alcohol content is displayed.
The impair aware alcohol level indication system can help an establishment that serves alcohol avoid third party lawsuits. A law called the "Dram Shop" makes bar owners responsible should a patron leave their establishment and get into an accident and later sue. Having an Impair Aware machine places the resonsiblity back on the shoulders of the drinker and off of the bar owner. Most people who blow an unsafe B.A.C. number wait it choose alternative transportation and continue to drink MORE and LONGER rather than leaving and risking unsafe, illegal driving.
