‘Breathalyzer in Every Bar’ Encouraged Safe Driving During Atlanta Super Bowl


February 06, 2019

ATLANTA, GA. – As reported online in a story published to indexjournal.com, the campaign “A Breathalyzer in Every Bar” encouraged safe driving practices during Super Bowl LIII, which was played in Atlanta, Georgia, on February 3. Super Bowl weekend is a popular time for drinking, and Atlanta patrons would have the opportunity to make sure they’re not over the limit before hitting the road.

In the Atlanta metro area, about 40 machines stand with the name Breathalyzer in Every Bar. Bars like Tony’s Sports Bar and Grill in Duluth, Georgia, and Crowne Sports Bar and Grill in Norcross, Georgia, have the machines ready for use. The machines allow bar-goers in the city to test their blood alcohol level before they leave an establishment. 

“I always make it a point to use the machine any time we go to a bar that has a breathalyzer vending machine,” said patron Brittany Heggen. “It’s a fun way to keep myself in check. I think it creates awareness, which prompts people to talk about the laws pertaining to drinking and driving.”

Many people do not understand the amount of alcohol that can push someone beyond the legal limit of .08. Even if someone does not feel impaired, he or she could be slapped with a DUI or cause a wreck after having one too many drinks. 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration calculated that one person in the U.S. died from a drunk driving accident every hour in 2015. On Super Bowl Sunday, and every day, the NHTSA promotes the campaign Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk, which encourages people to find safe, sober rides.
