      The newest gadget being installed in bars across Montgomery County isn't for fun and games. It's supposed to help you get home safe.

      WTOP's Andrew Mollenbeck reports that several bars, including Flanagan's Harp and Fiddle on Cordell Avenue in Bethesda, are installing breathalyzer machines that let patrons measure their blood-alcohol content before deciding whether to drive or not.

      Each breath test costs $1, WTOP says.

      The machine, known as the Boozelator 3001, claims to be extremely accurate.

      Would you trust a reading a bar breathalyzer gave you? Take our poll.
