Default "Show Me My Buzz" App

Missouri Department of transportation has developed a app. You enter info in and it will tell you if you are impaired to drive.

Good Idea or Bad Idea?

Quote:
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.
Missouri transportation officials have launched a new smartphone application to help people calculate their estimated blood-alcohol concentration. The "Show Me My Buzz" phone application is free. It estimates a user's blood-alcohol concentration based on how many drinks have been consumed, how long the person has been drinking and by gender. The application also will provide a phone number for a local cab company by tapping the screen. Officials say they hope the application will get people talking about the importance of selecting a designated sober driver.

I say BAD!!! Now you are going to have people using the app and when it tells them they are fine to drive they will go out and kill someone 'cause they aren't safe. Alcohol is different in everyone. No computer and tell you it is OK to drive.

Also it will say you are "buzzed" and you drive off and get in a accident. Still be charged with DUI. You gonna say a cell phone said it was okay to drive?
