JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri transportation officials have launched a new smartphone application to help people calculate their estimated blood-alcohol concentration.
The "Show Me My Buzz" phone app 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 app also will provide a phone number for a local cab company by tapping the screen.
Officials said they hope the application will get people talking about the importance of selecting a designated driver who has not drunk any alcohol.
