Traffic Unit Offering Alcohol Awareness

The Chandler Police Department’s Traffic Unit will be at this weekend’s Great American BBQ & Beer Festival in downtown Chandler.  During the festival, officers will be conducting “Know Your Limit,” an educational awareness program, in conjunction with GOHS.  Know Your Limit is a non-enforcement program designed to educate the public on the effects alcohol has on an individual’s blood alcohol level.

Qualified officers will provide attendees with the opportunity to blow into a portable breath tester (PBT).  These individuals will then be able to see how their alcohol consumption affects the amount of alcohol in their bloodstream.  Officers will also provide the participant with an informational flier outlining the program.

The ultimate goal of this program is to provide alcohol awareness to individuals who have consumed alcoholic beverages and allow them to understand their level of alcohol.  This information will allow individuals to make informed choices before they get behind the wheel of a vehicle.
