This technology already exists. There is a company in Australia that does sell this idea. However, the technology in an accurate brethalyser is very expensive, we are talking in the thousands of dollars. For this idea to be plausable it would need to conform to state and national standards which means simply you would have to employ the technology the police have access to. The companys that sells these units to police, will only sell them to police as there is no reason for another party to have it. You would have to make the item tamper proof, which would be next to impossible as a electronically gifted person could easily "hotwire" the device.
It is a good idea, but very impratical. I believe the last i heard of this technology being implemented in a commercial fashon the cost was estimated around the $10k mark.
The easist solution to the problem is dont drink and drive.
Dont mean to be too critical.
