Anything that takes your attention away from driving can be a distraction. Sending a text message, talking on a cell phone, using a navigation system, and eating while driving are a few examples of distracted driving. Any of these distractions can endanger the driver and others.
Texting while driving is especially dangerous because it combines all three types of distraction.Sending or reading a text message takes your eyes off the road for about 5 seconds, long enough to cover a football field while driving at 55 mph.
As a consumer, it seems like everywhere you turn someone is telling you to “drink responsibly.” We’re here to help you understand what it actually means to drink responsibly and, if you choose to drink, how to know your limits.
Whether that’s by helping you learn how to host and attend parties responsibly, make arrangements for a safe ride home, or understand how alcohol affects your blood-alcohol concentration on an individual level, we’ve got the tips and tools to help make you a more responsible consumer.
We call this nifty gadget the Virtual Bar. The Virtual Bar uses the latest science to help you not only get a better understanding of how different factors affect your blood-alcohol concentration – or BAC – on an individual level, but also can help you see how your night could go depending on the food you eat, the water you drink throughout the night, and other important variables. It also helps give you a sense of how long it would take for your BAC to return to 0.00, which we think will surprise you.
What’s more? The Virtual Bar will tell you how you might actually be feeling at different BAC levels to help you relate to and better understand the differences between BAC levels. That’s right, we know exactly how you’re feeling. We so get you.
