The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) has launched its designated driver mobile app. Office of Traffic Safety Spokesperson Chris Cochran says the technology is focused on rewarding the designated driver.
The app is the first of its kind, featuring exclusive offers and discounts to sober designated drivers at a growing list of participating bars and restaurants throughout California.
Users can stay up-to-date with the latest from DDVIP and see what other users are saying via its social tab.
For those who want to imbibe but also make it a point to plan ahead, users can take advantage of finding a ride.
Over 250 partnering bars and restaurants throughout the state have volunteered to offer nonalcoholic specialty drinks (“DDrinks”), among other perks, to designated sober drivers, with more being added every week.
The best way to see which bars are in the system is to download the app and check.
Chochran says New Year’s revelers would do well to have the app available, with the current December DUI Crackdown set to run through January 1. The California Highway Patrol and over 150 participating law enforcement agencies throughout California are conducting increased sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols.
The DDVIP app is available for iOS and Android devices.
