Whether it’s backyard barbecues, hanging at the pool, or going to a baseball game, summertime offers plenty of activities for people to come together and socialize. Many of these summer activities also involve consuming alcoholic beverages. As a result, the summer months see a substantial increase in both alcohol- involved crashes and DUIs, even more so around holiday weekends.
Millions of Americans will hit the road on Holiday weekends, and high rates of drinking combined with more people on the road can lead to tragedy. Blow N Go’s ignition interlock device (IID), or car breathalyzer, is a small gadget that attaches to your vehicle’s starter system and requires the measurement of the driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level prior to starting the vehicle.
By blowing into the interlock both before and during the operation of your car or truck, and confirming your BAC is below the programmed level mandated by your state’s law, your vehicle will start as normal. If your BAC is above .025 (for Maryland), your vehicle will not start until you provide a breath sample that no longer detects alcohol above the legal limit.
To make sure your 2018 summer is, relaxing, and most importantly, safe- come to Blow N Go to get your ignition interlock device installed today.
Save a life—don’t drink and drive.
