It’s good to know your limits when drinking. But during the holiday season, it’s easy to lose track. That’s where breathalyzers come in handy, especially if you’ve got to drive home.

The folks over at BACtrack, a company that makes all manner of Breathalyzers from police-grade to those on your smartphone, know this fact well. They also know that not everyone has one, which is why they are running a promo for the holidays. BACtrack are giving out free single-use breathalyzers called BACtrack SingleShots.

SingleShots can accurately tell if the user is above or below .05 percent blood alcohol content. All you have to do is squeeze the middle of the tube to activate it, blow for 12 seconds, then shake for three seconds. Boom: There’s your answer to whether you should get behind the wheel or not. Also, it’s small enough to fit in your pocket or purse, so there’s no excuse to NOT have it with you when you go out on the town.

Yes, the legal limit is .08 percent. But no one is suggesting you try and push the limit — everyone handles their alcohol differently and sometimes it can sneak up on you. The holiday season is one of the most dangerous times to be on the road, according to the Institute for Highway Safety. Did we mention the SingleShot is free? The only catch is that BACtrack only has 3,000 SingleShots to give out. If you’re going to be drinking this holiday season, you should try and be one of those 3,000.

Get your free SingleShot here, and use the offer code “GIFT”.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: If it’s free, it’s me. The safety factor just makes free that much better.
