Halloween is one of those crazy nights when people party like there’s no tomorrow. But sometimes on the morning after, people who party like it’s the end of the world can find themselves behind bars with a DUI charge. Since the penalties for drunk driving can be extremely costly, here are reasons why you should buy breathalyzer equipment to avoid legal trouble.
Halloween Party Precautions
If you’re planning on throwing a Halloween party, chances are you’ll be doing some shopping for pumpkins, skulls, spiders, and other decors. It’s a good idea to add a breathalyzer to your shopping list if your party involves serving alcohol. Sometimes partiers drink more than they had planned, which creates the risk of driving drunk and getting a DUI.
One option can be to set aside a room where drunken people can sleep off their intoxication. But that might not be practical since everyone will not likely want to sleep in their costumes and won’t think to bring an extra set of clothes. Besides, your shower will be crowded with hung over zombies the next day, running up your water bill.
An alternative is to buy breathalyzer equipment that measures BAC (blood alcohol concentration), so that vampires, witches, warlocks, goblins and ghosts can have an idea if they’re okay to drive. A breathalyzer comes in handy since party animals tend to lose track of the number of drinks they’ve had, plus they often have no idea how potent their drinks are. Some drinks might even be spiked with hard liquor by pranksters just trying to have a good time. Since BAC is affected by body weight, which is different for each individual, it’s possible to surpass the legal limit after just one drink.
Breathalyzers can save a crowd from going to jail. But, if you find yourself on the other side of jail, contact Signature Bail Bonds for smooth legal proceedings.
