GURNEE, Ill., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — How many drinks can you consume before you reach the legal limit?  The wrong decision could cost you jail time, loss of work or even your life.

One of the fastest growing industries in health and empowerment is the personal breathalyzer.  Sales have steadily increased over the years.  According to Wintergreen Research, sales of breathalyzers hit $284.6 million in 2011, and they forecast that number will climb to $3.2 billion by 2018 as prices fall and accuracy improves1. But do they work?

Ranging in price from $3 to $300, the right model can deliver a high level of accuracy.  However, the wrong model is useless and a waste of money and time.

Introducing “Cash for Clunkers!”  No, we aren’t talking cars; we’re talking personal breathalyzers.  The holidays were filled with displays of inexpensive breathalyzers for consumers to purchase for loved ones.  Many of these inexpensive models are not cleared by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and were most likely calibrated months ago in a foreign country, and already they are probably not working.  In other words — it’s a “clunker.”

Quest Products, Inc. has launched “Cash for Clunkers,” an opportunity for customers to trade in their used breathalyzer and upgrade to the latest technology.  Quest Products, Inc. will accept any and all breathalyzer models from any manufacturer and retailer whether the unit is working or not.  Simply contact customer service and they will buy it back from you by offering a trade-in allowance of $20 towards the purchase of a new, working AlcoHAWK® Breathalyzer.

Quest Products’ AlcoHAWK® brand of breath alcohol testing monitors are the premier name in breathalyzers.  All AlcoHAWK breathalyzer units are DOT tested and cleared as breath alcohol screening devices and have received U.S. FDA 510(k) pre-market.  The breathalyzers combine cutting-edge technology with simple-to-use formats and price point for any budget. AlcoHAWK breathalyzers provide accurate and instant results and are the #1 choice in determining blood alcohol concentrations (BAC).

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost every 90 seconds, a person is injured in a drunk driving crash2.  In 2012, 10,322 people died in drunk driving crashes3.  That’s equal to one person every 51 minutes.  Trade in your breathalyzer today.

Quest Products, Inc. supports zero tolerance testing, responsible drinking and prevention of underage drinking and drunk driving.  AlcoHAWK Personal Breathalyzers can be found on their company site at

Legal limit: a look inside Iowa's drunk driving laws

The punishment for vehicular homicide here in Iowa is stricter now than it was years ago, but for people who’ve lost a family member a maximum 25 year sentence isn’t enough, especially when you consider few people will actually be in jail for that long. It’s why some Iowans want to see harsher consequences for anyone who doesn’t think before they drink and drive.
