A breath test for detection of relative Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC)

BE SAFE,  BE LEGAL

How it works

For the most accurate results wait 15 minutes after your last drink.

If you are unable to wait, rinse your mouth with water before taking the test.

SNAP

Squeeze the middle of the tube between your thumb and finger until you feel the inner casing snap.

 

BLOW

Hold the tube vertically. Take a deep breath and blow firmly into the tube for a ­minimum of 12 seconds. Wait 4 ­minutes

 

TAP

On a hard flat surface tap the tube 3 times until the powder drops to the bottom of the tube.

 

READ

Compare the test against our colour scale. You are over the limit if most of the powder turns light aqua (Green/Blue) (Blue/Green). You are under the limit if the powder remains yellow or a slightly paler yellow compared to an ­unused tube.

Test your alcohol level before driving !

Into perspective

How much can I drink and stay under the limit?

There is no fool-proof way of drinking and staying under the limit. The amount of alcohol you would need to drink to be considered over the driving limit varies from person to person. It depends on:

  • Your weight, age, sex and metabolism (the rate your body uses energy)
  • The type and amount of alcohol you’re drinking
  • What you’ve eaten recently
  • Your stress levels at the time

Even small amounts of alcohol can affect your ability to drive so the only safe advice is to avoid any alcohol if you are driving.

How alcohol affects driving

Many of the functions that we depend on to drive safely are affected when we drink alcohol:

  • The brain takes longer to receive messages from the eye
  • Processing information becomes more difficult
  • Instructions to the body’s muscles are delayed resulting in slower reaction times.

You can also experience blurred and double vision, which affects your ability to see things clearly while you are driving. And you’re more likely to take potentially dangerous risks because you can act on urges you normally repress.

What’s the punishment if I get caught drink driving?

Anyone caught over the legal alcohol limit when driving will be banned from driving for at least 12 months, and fined up to £5,000. You can also be given between three to 11 penalty driving points. And you could be sent to prison for up to six months. Imprisonment, the period of disqualification, size of fine and penalty points depend on the seriousness of the offence.

If you’re caught drink driving more than once in a 10 year period, you’ll be banned for at least three years.

The small print

  • This test should be used as a guideline only and does not supersede an official police road side test.
  • Must be used in accordance with instructions provided as incorrect use may produce unreliable results.
  • Do not use if the inner case is cracked or damaged or if the crystals are not yellow in colour.
  • May be hard to read under certain lighting. Best read under white light or in direct sunlight.
  • Results should not be interpreted by anyone with impaired judgement from alcohol or any other substances, or someone who is colour blind or visually impaired.
  • Do not swallow the contents. If accidentally ingested seek medical assistance.
  • Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact, rinse eyes thoroughly with water.
  • Do not immerse in liquid.
  • Keep out of reach of children and animals.
  • Each tester is disposable and should be used only once.
  • Blood alcohol levels can continue to rise for several hours after your last drink. Care must be taken during this period even if a negative blood alcohol concentration is indicated.
  • It can take up to one hour to disperse each unit of alcohol (10ml) contained within the blood and over ten hours for your blood alcohol level to return to an acceptable level after a positive result is indicated. In such circumstances a further test should be carried out later in the day.
  • The results should not be relied upon to confirm your ability to drive. Driving while under the influence of alcohol increases the risks and dangers to yourself and others.
