We’ve created a list of 5 apps to help get you home safe after a night on the town. Read on to find the best one for you!
Created by the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration in 2014, ENDUI allows you to track the number of drinks and the amount of alcohol you have consumed. Additionally, you can input information about your body type, and the app will calculate a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) estimate. Although not 100% accurate, the calculator will give you an idea of how your body burns alcohol.
Additionally, the app allows you to input the contact information of a designated driver and has a “call a cab” function. ENDUI also has fun games and response tests, so you can see how alcohol affects your responsiveness. Finally, the app allows you to report drunk drivers to local authorities.
ENDUI is available for free download on iOS and Android devices.
2.Have a Plan
Published by Element Creative LLC in 2014, Have a Plan is very similar to ENDUI. Using GPS-activated software, you inform a cab or sober driver of your location. The app features a drink tracker and BAC estimate calculator for your convenience.
Have a Plan also offers a “test your skills” reflex function created specifically to help those looking to walk home determine if it is a safe option. It also has pre-downloaded myths and facts about DUIs and allows you to report a drunk driver within the app.
Have a Plan is available for free download on iOS, Android, and Windows devices.
If you find yourself too inebriated to operate a complex app, SaferRide is for you. Created by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the app features three simple buttons: “get taxi,” “call friend,” and “where am I?” This requires minimal thinking to use, which can be handy when under the influence. SaferRide list taxis immediately available in your area, and features a simple click-to-call button for each. You also have the ability to call a preloaded friend and share your GPS location with a simple click.
SaferRide is available for free download on Android and iOS devices.
Unlike other BAC calculators, Breathometer has an optional attachment that allows you to more accurately test your BAC level. The breathalyzer attachment works with an audio jack or via Bluetooth, and tells you not only your current BAC but the length of time it will take your body to burn off all of the alcohol. Additionally, the app menu has a “get home safe” feature that will share your location with a friend, taxi or Uber driver.
The app is available for free download on iOS and Android devices, but the attachment is a separate purchase.
StearClear is a service that not only gets you home safely but contacts a one-way driver to drive your vehicle home. No more worrying about getting to your car the next day, or leaving it unattended. The app allows you to schedule your taxi or black car service through messaging and sends the driver your exact GPS location.
StearClear is sold by Dashride, Inc., and is available for free download on iOS and Android devices.
