Beating the Cops at Their Own Game
If you’ve been following along, in this blog, you know that I have a sweet spot in my heart of hearts for pi … uh co …. uh ociffers of the law. I have time and time again told you how, through diligence, hard work and sheer intelligence, the popo have thwarted major top brass criminals and brought them to justice through expert police work. I have tirelessly pointed out how they are NOT corporate shills, enforcing made up laws, for the sole purpose of throwing countless Americans in jail, simply to generate money for private corporate jails across the land.
Case in point, DUI. Everyone knows that we definitely needed an entire separate legal system and laws for people who drive their cars and hit people… wait, I mean people who drive their cars and hurt people … wait, I mean people who drive their cars and are erratic … and uh, were drinking? Hmmm! We needed separate laws for people who drive their cars and could possibly hurt people? Wait, we needed separate laws for people who had their back tail light about to go out, and were stopped by police, and smelled of alcohol and the police psychically knew they were going to hurt someone, just cuz? No no no, I got it! We needed separate laws for people who the police psychically knew could possibly, potentially hurt someone, since they smelled … kinda … of alcohol “wink wink” and thus we needed to throw out the constitution and demand MANDATORY SENTENCES for them. THERE WE GO LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!
So, obviously I’m being sarcastic. There is, was, never had been a need for additional laws for people driving who hurt people, regardless of their alledged smelling of alcohol, other than the police being the lap dogs of private corporate prisons who definitely need more money. DUI is a scam, plain and simple.
So, what can I do for you? Buy your own breathalyzer. You want to beat police at their own game? Breathalyze yourself before they do, so you know exactly what your B.A.C. (blood alcohol content) is. When everyone was getting stupid speeding tickets, that they knew were bogus, they bought radar detectors. Now, people who know that DUI is the number one way police departments and local governments generate tons of cash from their citizens are buying their own breathalyzer.
BACtrack Select S80 Breathalyzer Professional Edition
The BACtrack Select S80 Breathalyzer is designed to meet the rigorous standards of expert alcohol screeners–from roadside law enforcement to hospital workers and treatment professionals. Approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation, the S80 has also been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for personal use, making it a top choice of safety-conscious individuals.
The S80 Pro features simple one-button operation that allows you to begin testing in just 10 seconds, with a refresh time of 10 to 20 seconds between tests. Providing accurate four-digit results on a bright LCD screen, the S80 is capable of detecting trace amounts of alcohol, an important feature in zero-tolerance environments such as treatment centers and alcohol-free homes.
Compact and convenient enough to take anywhere, the cell-phone-sized breathalyzer fits easily in pockets, purses, or glove compartments, and it accommodates 1,500 tests per set of AA batteries.
Enhanced Fuel-Cell Sensor Ensures Accurate Measurements
Utilizing Xtend™ Sensor Technology, the S80 boasts greater accuracy than semiconductor-based sensors, which are subject to interference from acetone, a compound often found in individuals who have diabetes or who are on low-calorie diets. Xtend Sensor Technology also ensures accurate readouts at high blood-alcohol concentrations. For added accuracy, the S80 uses temperature-checking, user-adjustable warning levels and an interior miniature air pump to precisely collect breath samples.
What’s in the Box
BACtrack S80 Pro Breathalyzer, hard shell carrying case, six mouthpieces, two AA batteries, and user guide.
Product Reviews by Actual Customers
I purchased the BacTrack S80 in August from amazon and I am extremely pleased with the product. First and probably most important, it seems to give very accurate results. Three years ago I received one of those cheap keychain units as a gift and it read all over the map and never worked well. Here, with this product, if I test myself 3 times in a row I get the same test result 3 times, so you know it’s consistent. And if I test a sober person and then a very drunk person, there is no crossover or contamination, which is something I worried about (and really researched) before this purchase. So $199 is not cheap, but you get what you pay for here in terms of accuracy.
Besides being happy with the accuracy, I really like the small size. I have an LG Envy phone and the Bactrack S80 is almost the same size. I didn’t consider size prior to my purchase, but because it’s portable, I’m much more likely to take the BacTrack out when I drink, which is really the whole point of having it.
I appreciate the advanced features and being able to adjust the flow settings, but mainly I just turn it on and test. As of today, I’m already on test # 144. Yeah, it’s been passed around and used by a lot of people already. 5 stars for its accuracy and reliability alone.
After girlfriend got a DUI, I bought her one of these. She was skeptical, but after testing it many nights in a row (drinking in the name of research of course), we were pleasantly surprised to find it very accurate. It’s expensive but its absolutely worth it for the quality. I can’t believe that the police are the only ones who have access to these. By the time you’re using it with a cop, its usually too late. FYI – the instructions say that you want to wait 15 to 20 minutes after you’ve had a drink, otherwise it’ll pick up the alcohol still in your mouth and read too high.
The one I ordered came promptly with nice packaging. I’m here … ordering another one for myself.
I normally don’t write reviews but felt like I had to with the S80. This is a really great unit. I can’t beleive how small and how accuarate the readings are. My friend is a police office and we tested the S80 against one of his units and they were dead on with the readings. I had bought some cheaper units in the past that didn’t seem to work too well but the S80 is the real deal. Definitely worth paying a few bucks more to get the real deal.
As you can see from all the reviews, these people never got another DUI after buying their own breathalyzer. It’s easy to carry and you should never leave home without it. You never know when someone will call you to ask you to stop by and have a drink. The legal limit in all 50 states is now 0.08% B.A.C. There’s no reason to ever get another DUI, when you can purchase this device. Having DUI on your record is a kick in the balls, and it destroys so many people’s lives. It’s a shame that so many college students, freshly turned 21, promptly get a DUI and ruin their lives immediately. Heck, buy one for your kid if he’s in college yourself.
Stop burying your head in the sand and wake up to what’s going on out there. The police are out there to get as much money from you as they can. Do not give them a chance to get you on DUI.
