“It gets really dangerous, especially with all the underage drinking”
This is a kind of dumb half-measure. They’re requiring breathalyzers but not requiring people to use them.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Major university will require breathalyzers at frat parties
As colleges continue their transformation from centers of education to daycare centers for grown children, one taxpayer-subsidized university in California is now taking action to require the availability of alcohol breath testing at on-campus parties.
Last month, the Interfraternity Council at UCLA updated their Risk Management Policy for student fraternities and sororities to include a requirement that the organizations provide breathlyzer testing for students during on-campus parties that they host.
According to The Daily Bruin, fraternities and sororities will be required to offer the breath tests by also employing a “risk manager,” whose job will be to assess the behavior and drinking habits of various party attendees and determine if they need to have their B.A.C. checked.
Interestingly enough, students will not be forced to blow into the breathalyzer if someone feels they have had too much to drink. Rather, they should know they have the “option” of checking to see how drunk they really are. According to students at UCLA, not requiring students to blow essentially defeats the purpose of having the testing present at parties.
“It gets really dangerous, especially with all the underage drinking,” said Jordan Arnett, a fourth-year psychology student at UCLA. “But I feel like if it’s just asking them (to take the Breathalyzer test) and not forcing them, they might not agree.”
