Finnish "SMS breathalyser" Alert Service

Promile SMS, a text message-based blood alcohol level assessment service developed by Finland's A-Clinic Foundation, launched as part of a nationwide campaign to prevent drunk driving, is now available in the Czech Republic, according to NewsRoom Finland.

Promille GSM, can be used by sending a text message to a designated short code. The message should begin with PROMILLE, followed by the sex (M for male, N for female), weight in kilogrammes, consumed units and time when consumption started (example: 2100 means 9pm). Each piece of information is to be followed by a space.

The service replies with a message with a blood alcohol level estimate and time needed for said alcohol to be broken down by the body.
