Drinkers Can Track BAC with New iPhone App

Freitag 11. Dezember 2009 von htm

A new iPhone application helps users keep track of their blood-alcohol content (BAC) and sends warning messages if data indicates the user is „buzzed“ or legally intoxicated. The Denver Post reported Dec. 2 that the free R-U-Buzzed? application developed by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) calculates BAC based on information about the user’s weight, sex, type and amount of alcohol consumed, and number of hours spent drinking. If the application determines that the user’s BAC is over the legal limit of .08 percent, an anti drunk-driving warning flashes: „Don’t even think about it.“ (Source: Join Together, 12/10/09) See also our entry on 12/9/09 from the U.K.
