Breathalyzers and similar devices could be installed in more bars across the U.S. state of Utah under a coming proposal from Republican Rep. Greg Hughes, the Associated Press reported.
The proposal aims to cut down on drunk driving and while bars wouldn’t be required to install them, it would ensure they would not be held responsible if a customer fails a breath test and drives anyway, Hughes said.
In Toledo, Ohio, some establishments have installed a machine charmingly called the boozelator, which does readings for $1.
However, the results are not admissible in court.
