National Draeger is the company manufacturing "Breathalyzer", and has become a generalised trademark for instruments. AlcoScan, Alcotest, AlcoSensor, Alcolizer, Datamaster, Intoxilyzer, Intoximeter, include brand names in use.
Driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) plays a large role in automobile accidents. The police handle the DUI situation by using a breathalyser, which estimates the blood alcohol content (BAC) from a breath sample.
In India, a staggering 70% of automobile accidents are due to drunken driving. In U.S., drunk driving kills someone every 31 minutes and every 2 minutes someone is injured.
Drinking and driving leads to slow reflexes, which decreases the ability to react quickly. Other significant adverse effects are blurred vision and drowsiness while driving.
