The creators of a controversial invention called the “Breathalyzer Equalizer“ joined the Bert Show in studio to talk about a product that might have a lot of listeners up in arms. The goal of the Breathalyzer Equalizer is to eliminate what are called “false positives” on breathalyzer tests.
Alcohol molecules can reside in the mouth for 15 – 20 minutes after a drink (burping can even bring back the molecules, starting the process over again), and can alter the true reading in a breathalyzer test of the BAC (blood alcohol content) by making it higher.
Police officers are trained to wait 15 – 20 minutes before starting a breathalyzer test; this will eliminate that wait by getting rid of only the mouth alcohol residue…it won’t affect the user’s actual blood alcohol content.
But will this product make people think they can drink even more before getting behind the wheel?
