New app to prevent impaired driving

Livingston County launched a new mobile app on Friday to prevent impaired driving.

The Have a Plan mobile app encourages people to have a plan to get home safely if they are impaired by alcohol or drugs.

The app operates on iPhone, Android and Windows platforms, with features such as an ability to preload a list of designated drivers, find a taxi cab via GPS, an alcohol impairment estimator, various motor skills tests to assess impairment level and a Report DWI button that connects users to their local 911 service.

The app also offers a list of DWI facts and myths, access to STOP-DWI social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, as well as a RSS feed to get the latest news on impaired driving.

 We want to keep our roadways a safe place to travel and want these folks to get home safely. This app helps its users do that by placing a tool in the hands of a potentially impaired driver to find a safe way home,  said  Sheriff Thomas Dougherty.  

The app was developed by STOP-DWI New York and Staples Marketing under a grant from the New York State Governors Traffic Safety Committee.

Users can download the Have A Plan app by visiting app and selecting the link for the Apple Store, Google Play, or the Windows Phone Store.
