You mean something like this?
If they work like the police breathalyzer I "tested" a couple of
years ago the required volume of air is MUCH greater than a regular
syringe carries. I passed easily, BTW.

It does seem pretty punitive. Here's Ontario's rules:
Note that a *first* offence (over 0.08) leads to a 1-year mandatory
licence suspension (and education programs, which the offender must
pay for) followed by a 1-year interlock (user pay) requirement.
I imagine that might be a bit of a problem when the user tries
to rent a car, not to mention the crimnal record and insurance
increases. Those three or four beers could turn out to be
VERY expensive. So, like, don't do it, eh?
