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.
