Use These Apps to Avoid Driving Drunk in Florida

 

Most of us have been tempted at some time or another to get behind the wheel after having a drink or two. However, drunk driving is not only dangerous to you and other motorists, it can have serious legal repercussions.

 

Most cases of drunk driving come down to bad planning. You go out, have a few drinks, and don’t have a way to get yourself and your car home without getting behind the wheel. Moreover, if you’re intoxicated, you’re more likely to exercise poor judgement by deciding that you’re okay to drive home.

 

One way to avoid this problem is to – wait for it – use an app.

 

That’s right, there are now apps (quite a few, actually) that have been designed to help people avoid drinking and driving. Depending on the app in question, you can do things like track how much you’ve had to drink, take tests to help you determine if you are impaired, find a ride home, and even get your car home without driving it.

Best Apps to Help Avoid Drunk Driving

Below we’re going to cover some of the best and most popular drunk driving apps out there, but there are numerous others.

 

Drink Tracker or AlcoDroid

Drink Tracker (iPhone) or AlcoDroid (Android) helps you log alcohol consumption and calculates your probable blood alcohol content based on the time and amount of alcohol consumed, your gender and your age, height, and weight. It also calculates the time you should go without drinking for your blood alcohol to fall below the legal limit.

 

ENDUI

ENDUI calculates blood alcohol content, too, and it also features reflex games to allow users to estimate their degree of impairment. Additionally, ENDUI has features that make it easier for you to call a cab or trusted contact for a ride if you’re too impaired to drive.

 

StearClear

Taxis or ride sharing services can help get you home if you’re unable to drive. However, your car is another story, and some locations will tow cars left overnight. StearClear is a booking app that connects you to a professional driver who will drive both you and your car home. This app allows users to arrange a pickup time, arrange for one-way driver services, and contact drivers through messaging.

 

If you are Injured by a Drunk Driver

 

Even if you drive sober, you may still be injured by another motorist who has negligently chosen to drive while intoxicated. Unfortunately, sober drivers and passengers are actually more likely than drunk drivers to be killed in DUI accidents.

The drunk driver will most likely face criminal consequences for his or her negligence, but this does little to address the suffering your family endured. Seeking civil damages can help to address financial concerns arising from the accident, while also helping to bring closure to a traumatic event.

 

If you or a loved one are injured by a drunk driver, hold the driver accountable for their negligence. A knowledgeable Florida injury lawyer can help you to seek damages to get the compensation you deserve.
