  • What do you mean by "judge" them? I would think that they had made some really bad choices, and I would be glad that they had the court ordered breathalizer in their car. I might wonder about how good their judgement was in general, or I might wonder if they had a drinking problem. But I wouldn't assume they were a bad person or somehow not worthy of my friendship.

  • Oh, and for the record, my husband and I have small breathalizers on our keychains, and we use them before we drive. We also ask our friends to use them if they've been drinking and plan to drive. I think everyone who drives a car and ever takes a drink should have a personal breathalizer. It is surprisingly (and frighteningly) easy to mistakenly think you are more sober than you actually are.

  • bluefrogmama where did you get the keychain breathalizer????

  • Look on, or google "breathalizer". There is quite a selection out there. Most of the keychain ones are for novelty purposes, and aren't very reliable. But if you do your homework and spend a bit more, you can find a good one. You can also get really good hand-held ones that you can keep in your glove compartment.

  • I want a keychain breathalizer, To the OP I try not to judge anyone for any reason. As long as you are sticking to court orders then I dont see why anyone would judge you for that

  • A little bit. My uncle has one of those because he keeps getting DUI's. But then again, people that have those things are usually trying to better themselves.

  • I wouldn't judge them but I most likely wouldn't ride in their car. Depending on the results
