    Ok so in Birmingham (UK) clubs and bars have introduced breath tests to indicate how drunk someone is....if they are over the limit they will not be allowed in regardless if you are in full control of yourself!

    What are your thoughts on this?

    Most people consider themselves in full control long after their reaction time and physical control (and mental control as well) is impaired.

    Normally the bartenders here gauge your drunkenness and stop serving you alcohol and tell you to go home, but maybe they don't do that as much in the U.K.??

    Or increase there sales. You'll be forced to be at the bar instead of predrinking at home. getting half smashed before you even get to the bar.

    More control on a person. If you want to vomit on yourself and hug the toilet all night then that should be an individuals choice. I am a big boy. Let me handle myself as long as I'm not driving.

    Seems to me that an owner/bartender or bouncer would be able to tell if a customer was intoxicated. The breath test should be done as they're leaving and help cut down on DUIs

    It's an interesting question because where is the line between freedom and safety? Just a side note, no one is limiting an individual's ability to get smashed in their own home, just limit the amount they can in public.

    publicans are busy and do not determine quantitative tests. Publicans aren't law enforcement officers. They cut people off to prevent liability suits. Breathalyzer tests at the pub would be helpful as evidence that someone had been notified that they were impaired but actually implementing it would be problematic.

    OK, that makes sense. In the US there have been quite a few lawsuits where the owners/bartenders let intoxicated people leave bars and end up in accidents :( To my knowledge there hasn't been any momentum behind actually using breathalyzer tests.
