Alco-Buddy Lets Drivers Know if They Drank Too Much
Online PR News – 26-November-2010 – – Holbrook, NY (November 24th 2010) - Many Americans will gather with friends and family this week to celebrate Thanksgiving. While overeating will probably on many people’s agenda, it’s important to remember you know if you’ve had too much to drink before you drive. The Thanksgiving holiday weekend is one of the deadliest holidays on U.S. highways. With millions of Americans making plans to attend Thanksgiving gatherings and post-holiday parties, a New York company urges partygoers who plan to drink to take a simple test before they get behind the wheel. Alco-Buddy, a patented breathalyzer with a accuracy rate of +/- .01, allows bar patrons to test their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level and prevent them from hitting the roads and endangering others.
“People are heading home for Thanksgiving this week and making plans to meet friends at their local bars. Alco-Buddy is a simple and affordable test that gives patrons the information they need to make a responsible decision about driving if they’ve had too much to drink.” says John Berlingieri of Alco-Buddy.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) survey estimates 1 in 5 Americans admit they have driven drunk. The Thanksgiving holiday alcohol over consumption can lead to tragedy. One person is killed every half-hour due to drunk driving and every other minute a person is seriously injured in an alcohol related crash
John added, “Prevention is key. Drunk driving is a serious problem in this country and can not only lead to tragedy but also jail time, loss of your license and increased insurance rates. Alco-Buddy can help prevent drunk driving by providing patrons with accurate information quickly so they can make a responsible decision, stay off the roads and find another way home.”
