Here comes Watch Your BAC 2.0, a new way of preventing drinking and driving.
We all know the dangers of drinking and driving. You booze, you cruise, you lose!
At Powered Labs, we’ve developed a mobile app with the Drug Abuse Comprehensive Coordinating Office (DACCO),
and we have a fresh update with tons of really cool new features!
Every day we read in the newspaper or see on television the dangers of drinking and driving. In 2011, more than 55,000 tickets were issued in the state of Florida, with Hillsborough County having the highest rate of convictions in all major Florida counties. Being a college city with close proximity to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and exciting clubs, living in Tampa has a higher risk for these dangerous behaviors.
The Good News:
The good thing is that we have ways of being safe, even when we go out for a night on the town. As a full-service digital agency, Powered Labs has been very lucky and excited to work with DACCO, a multi-award nominated community organization, on a mobile app called Watch Your BAC. The app helps track your blood alcohol level and is really easy to use – all you need to do is put in your weight and sex, and enter your drink of choice. The app also includes a breakdown of cocktail ingredients so you know exactly what’s in it.
When you finish your drink, the app estimates your blood alcohol content and lets you know if you’re under the legal limit to drive. If you’ve had one too many, or drank too quickly for your body to remove the alcohol from your system, it gives you a countdown for when you’ll be safe to drive.
New features include:
– connecting with a party of your friends from your phone’s contacts
– setting goals and limits for what you consume
– designating a driver from your party of friends
– monitoring your friends’ blood alcohol content
– unlocking achievements when you reach your goals
Why take the risk? Watch your BAC and know your limits. Stay in the green.
