Three Apps Curbing Drunk Driving
A number of apps help the inebriated calculate their blood alcohol level, get a ride home, or find a place to sober up
Every year, thousands of accidents are caused by drunk driving. While police try to stop and arrest these individuals before any collisions occur, often they are too late. Whether it is due to not knowing how intoxicated they are or because they feel as though they can drive drunk, people continue to drive while under the influence. In the age of smartphones and useful apps, some developers are using their skills to try and reduce the number of drunk driving accident.
One of these apps in ENDUI, developed by the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA). Available for free on iOS and Android, the app provides several useful functions including a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) calculator.
