The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is highlighting its “Zero in Wisconsin Driver Sober” mobile app, which you can download for free here. The app, which is available for download for both Apple and Android devices, contains various tools meant to curb drunk driving. Since the launch of the app, over 73,000 users have downloaded it to their devices.
The Drive Sober app includes the following features:
- An estimating tool that measures your blood alcohol level
- A means of selecting a designated driver
- A “Find a Ride” resource, which, based on your GPS location, provides you with numbers for safe ways to get home, such as taxis and mass transit stops
- Video clips aired in the Zero in Wisconsin TV ads
- Games that measure your vision and reaction time
Using the Drive Sober app can not only save your own life, but it can prevent other incidents of drunk driving, as well. The app simply reinforces the point that you should always designate a sober driver before beginning your night out or celebratory event, and never get behind the wheel of a vehicle – or allow your companions to do so – while impaired. Some bars and restaurants participate in the Tavern League of Wisconsin’s Safe Ride program, which provides customers with a safe way home if they have been drinking.
Drunk and impaired driving contributes to many deadly accidents each year in the state of Wisconsin and nationwide. The goal of the “Zero in Wisconsin” campaign is to reduce traffic fatalities in the state of Wisconsin to zero. Last year, there were 588 deaths on Wisconsin roadways, some caused by impaired driving, and others caused by speeding, distracted driving, and other traffic violations.
