Well this is a new app I think they should develop!
I think they have done a great job with their recent campaign, which really makes you think about the dilema of driving the day after a night out. From their radio ads I get the point that the “cures” don’t work. And that it takes an hour for a unit of alcohol to leave your system. But that’s where I start to get confused, or a little unclear.
So what if I did have drinks last night, how do I know how the calculations work. Does each new drink start the clock on how long it takes for alcohol to leave my system?
This is where I get confused and this is where I think an app would be a great idea.
Let me submit what I drank, when I started, how often an hour I would have had a drink. What time I stopped and then calculate for me what time I should consider hitting the road at.
I am sure there are legal issues around this, everyone has different metabolisms etc.. But if they were to err on the side of being uber cautious and state that this is just a guide, it could still work. Basically if this thing tells me I shouldnt go near a car until 6pm tonight, isnt that a good thing? It has the potential of keeping people off the road who are still over the limit (therefore a danger) but who think they aren’t because they have been to sleep.
What do you think? Good idea?
