KSBY News puts personal breathalyzers to the test

Local law enforcement will be out in full force this weekend, making sure residents have a safe Superbowl Sunday.

The California Highway Patrol says the number of alcohol-related crashes more than doubles on Superbowl Sunday.

Now, with $15 breathalyzers on the market, officers worry more people will get behind the wheel when they should not.

They are reminding partygoers that you can still be under the influence of alcohol, even if you are under the legal limit of .08.

They say that is why a designated driver is the best solution.

"It eliminates any doubt and any thought that maybe I am okay, maybe I can still drive," said Bill Vail of the CHP. "What we want to do is get everybody to stay off the road when they've been drinking."

With some help from the CHP KSBY News put those personal breathalyzers to the test.

We'll show you the results tonight at 6.
