With the arrival warmer weather comes Prom Season and with Prom Season comes the desire of some students to drink before, during, and after the dance. Now unless the students failed a few grades, they probably have not reached the age of 21 and that makes their consumption of alcohol… illegal.

Parents, chaperones and even students getting a ride w/ other students need a tool they can use to quickly and accurately test whether or not a person has consumed alcohol.

While alcohol detection meters like the AlcoHAWK SLIM Digital Alchol Detector has a modest cost of around $70 and ten of the AlcoHAWK SLIM single-use mouthpieces cost just $7, the initial cost of ownership rings in at around eighty bucks and for some school and parents, that’s $80 more than they want to spend.

Thankfully science has come up with more affordable alternatives that get the job done and don’t break the bank:

Underage drinking on Prom Night will not go away on its own. It will take the diligent efforts of, and cooperation between, school organizers and parents. Spot testing drivers and/or students acting suspiciously might just save a life that night… or keep someone from spending the rest of their in jail cell, or worse yet, in a coma.
