One of the most effective weapons against drunk driving is the breathalyzer. If you aren’t familiar with the device, it is a gadget that’s able to determine whether or not a motorist is intoxicated by reading his or her blood alcohol content through the person’s breath.
We’ve written on numerous occasions about how authorities have equipped themselves with these devices to clamp down on drunk drivers in Metro Manila. Recently, the InterAgency Council for Traffic (I-ACT) shared that the agency is putting them to good use.
Over the past few days, I-ACT has shared drunk driving apprehension footage wherein enforcers used their breathalyzers to determine a driver’s blood alcohol content. It even posted one instance of a professional driver’s license holder with a 0.410% blood alcohol content who was involved in a minor accident while riding a motorbike. Look:
I-ACT shows off its breathalyzers
For everyone’s information, the I-ACT says a driver’s blood alcohol content should read as 0% if they are behind the wheel with a professional license. The rider is now in custody and facing charges of reckless imprudence resulting in damage to property and of violating the Anti-drunk and Drugged Driving Act of 2013.
You can check out even more of the I-ACT’s breathalyzers in action in the posts below. Guys, don’t drink and drive. No one wins in situations like these—except maybe for the breathalyzer manufacturers.
