“Every day, Colorado drivers are putting lives at risk by driving impaired. Each year, more than 26,000 people are arrested for DUI, and more than one-third of all Colorado traffic fatalities are alcohol-related.

BACtrack aims to help people monitor their blood alcohol content (BAC) to make informed and responsible decisions when it comes to driving.”
