The Maryland Highway Safety Office has developed a new app that helps drivers determine if they've had too much to drink called "ENDUI". The app works by entering gender, weight, the type of alcohol consumed and the time frame in which those drinks were taken. With that information, the app estimates a persons' blood-alcohol content (b.a.c.) and assists users with calling designated friends and/or a taxi company.
ENDUI also has two interactive games that help assess cognitive responses and reactions to help determine whether a driver is impaired or not. The app also lets users report other drivers suspected of being under the influence.
In 2014, there were an estimated 152 people killed in alcohol-related crashes in Maryland. That is one third of all traffic fatalities in Maryland.
The app is funded with federal money from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and is available in New York, New Mexico, California and Colorado.
The ENDUI app is free and available thru Google Play and Itunes.
