Impaired driving negatively impacts judgment, perception and major motor skills —crucial abilities to stay safe while on the road. CDOT's R-U-Buzzed app is a BAC calculator and handy resource to help drinkers gauge their BAC level.
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.
MORE APP FEATURES & INFORMATION
NEED A RIDE
The "Need a Ride" feature directly connects with popular ride-hailing services. Uber, Lyft, zTrip and Curb are all available through the app.
DISCLAIMER AND DUI INFO
Do not use the R-U-Buzzed app to determine whether you should operate a motor vehicle or other heavy equipment. This app is intended as a guide and will not be accepted as evidence in court. It is never safe to drive after any amount of alcohol. You can be arrested for impaired driving if your driving ability is affected to even the slightest degree. Designate a sober driver, or use a ride-hailing or taxi service.
