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.
