Even if you feel completely sober to drive, that doesn’t mean you’re legally okay to drive. Boy Genius Report has found an affordable keychain breathalyzer that uses the same technology that police use during DUI stops. Find out more from BGR and shop below:

From BGR:
Plenty of people know when they’ve had a few too many, and they do the responsible thing by letting someone else drive them home. In the age of Uber and Lyft, there’s no excuse whatsoever for getting behind the wheel of a car when you’re drunk. Of course some people have a few drinks and think that they’re sober enough to drive, and those borderline cases are the ones that get responsible people in trouble. Thankfully, there are now tools at our disposal that completely remove guesswork from the equation. The BACtrack C8 Personal Breathalyzer is small enough to fit in your pocket and it has the same type of accurate sensor used by law enforcement. This model also have a fantastic extra feature though: It gives you the approximate amount of time it’ll take before you’ll be sober again.

It uses patented BluFire Fuel Cell Sensor to read your blood alcohol level with the same tech that law enforcement uses, so you can trust that if it says you’re over the legal limit, you shouldn’t be driving a car. Thanks to its Bluetooth functionality, you also have the option to sync this device with your smartphone using the corresponding app as well.
