HOW IT WORKS

The R-U-Buzzed app allows users to track their BAC level based on information they enter—weight, gender and the amount of drinks consumed in a given time. The app compares the user's estimated BAC with Colorado's DUI and DWAI laws, and includes a "Back to Zero" estimate, which approximates when the user will be completely sober after he/she stops drinking. The app's intuitive, single-screen interface allows users to update, adjust or begin a new reading immediately.
