Too high to drive? There's an app for that...

Recommended Posts

Enter Israeli startup Otorize, which has developed an app that can identify when someone is high in just a few seconds, before they get behind the wheel and put their loved ones at risk, as well as other drivers and pedestrians. Moreover, the company says its app does not require a physical test, and identifies any kind of cognitive impairment, whether stemming from cannabis, alcohol, drugs, or medication.

The article link is here (including a tragic story about an entire family of 8 killed in an accident "allegedly caused by another driver under the influence of marijuana"  https://www.timesofisrael.com/too-high-or-drunk-to-drive-israeli-startup-has-app-that-can-tell-if-you-are/

The company: https://www.otorize.com/ 

Their free beta app is on Google Play but no reviews about its efficacy. 

(There is also a cognitive app called Druid which supposedly detects "impairment". Buggy and costs .99. Anyone try it?)

It can identify cognitive impairment but not from what. Interesting idea but why is it linked to marijuana? There are millions of things that could impair a person. Marijuana is way down the list. Better start at the top of the list with most all pills. Once you weed out ALL the pills then make your way down the list and check marijuana. At that point you will have already eliminated 90 % of the impaired drivers. The rest are texting. eating, picking their noses, or retrieving things off the floor. People are bad drivers and marijuana is a good drug. Why hook the two together?
