New App Calls Uber When BAC is Over Legal Limit

Have you gone out drinking with friends and had more to drink than you expected to? Many people would prefer to get in their car and go home rather than risk leaving their car in a place where it might be ticketed or towed. However, whenever you drink and get behind the wheel of a car, you risk the chance of being pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Breeze Protects Drivers by Calling Uber

Living in the age of smartphones surely has its benefits. There are many apps that allow someone to track their alcohol content, play games to determine their blood alcohol content, or even apps that promote the use of ridesharing services. One app that can do so is called Breeze. Breeze will inform a user of how drunk they are, and will call Uber, a ridesharing service, if they are over the legal limit.

The app works similarly to other breathalyzer apps by testing the blood alcohol content of the user. It connects to a mobile app through Bluetooth. No matter what the BAC level of the driver is, the app provides an estimated amount of time it will take for the driver's BAC to return to zero. It will then link to Uber or give the user the option to call a friend or another local cab company.

While apps that work to guess the blood alcohol content of a user are generally helpful, there is no guarantee that their results are the same as what law enforcement would determine using professional devices. Using the results of an app in a court of law may not be effective, so even if an app indicates that you may not be drunk, it might be helpful to use a ridesharing app anyway if you have had a few drinks.
