SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Gov. Gary Herbert has signed legislation setting standards for bars installing Breathalyzers and similar devices.

The proposal from Draper Republican Rep. Greg Hughes lets bars choose whether to put up the devices, but it prohibits the machines from storing patrons’ credit card information after they pay to use them. It also prevents devices from storing any blood alcohol data collected for any purpose except calibrating the machine.

Hughes says the devices could make roads safer by helping drinkers determine whether they are fit to drive.

But critics say they could have the opposite effect, encouraging patrons to outdrink each other.
