KCPD will breathalyze patrons at Tanner's tonight

Check your BAC at Tanners tonight.
  • Check your BAC at Tanner's tonight.

If you're slumming it at bars in Waldo tonight, you might can come away with a little valuable information about your ability to drive after a few cocktails. The Kansas City Police Department is hosting a "Know Your Limits" event tonight at Tanner's Bar and Grill (7425 Broadway). You can have a few drinks, and KCPD officers will give you a breathalyzer if you want. The police will not issue citations based on blood alcohol content. Turning it into a contest with your buddies is not encouraged, though.

The department says the event is "Purely educational, to help prevent drunk driving. No tickets will be issued based on the results. Information on how alcohol affects individuals will be available." And phone numbers for cab companies will be distributed. A few things to keep in mind: Don't be belligerent; cops aren't giving tickets based on BAC alone. Also, if you blow a high number, it's definitely a good idea to use the cab company information the friendly officers give you. In related news, KCPD announced that there will be a DUI checkpoint in Kansas City over the weekend.
