This is an app that will help save lives and be good for people who needs a ride home if they are too drunk to drive. This app is for people of all ages young and old. When you go to a bar with your friends you are likely going to have a few drinks. This app will tell you whether you can drive yourself home, or if you need to call a taxi. When you open the app, it will ask you very easy questions about yourself and do you drink a little or are you an alcoholic.Or if you know your personal information that you would put in when you first open the app. Just any easy questions that you should be able to answer before you can drive. Another great idea is that it can give your location to "UBER" or "TAXI." Somalia G_CSK


Why is this issue personal to you?

Josh Hicks OPS - This is a personal issue to me because on February 24th, 2017 My cousin's friend "Jessica Edwards " went out to a restaurant and had a few drinks. She was the one that did the right thing by calling a taxi. On the drive home in the taxi, driving through an intersection. Another car hit the taxi killing my cousin's friend. The ironic part is that the person who hit the taxi was drunk. That's why this app "Hung-Under" can save lives.

Ethan Szywaga OPS - Whenever my cousins come over, their parents and my parents sometimes get [[#|drunk]]. I think this app would help because they could test to see if they are able to drive home safely.This can help many other families with people that like to go to bars. So that they can come home to their children. That's why this app is personal to me.

MeoshaR - This issue is personal to me because people die because of these problems, and not just random people innocent people it sad!! That's why
I think this app can help others from this problem.

Tylexusia Sheppard CSK - It's important Because It's sad to see your mother at night drunk and doing some inappropriate things.
I think this is very important. Especially because of all the deaths that happen every year because of being drunk. I am glad to help this app improve.

Gabe H OPS - This is personal because my dad was hit by a drunk driver. He was coming [[#|home]] to see us from a hard day of work. He worked on houses and he had his own business. He was the one who provided us money for food and things we wanted. He was turning and then suddenly hit by the drunk driver. Afterwards, he wasn't able to work because he can't lift more than eighty pounds. I think this app will help prevent things like this.

Fernando Silva CL- This issue is personal to me because my uncle drinks very much and he comes drunk to familiar dinners and the family suffers a lot. He already started a lot of fights and we need to pick up from the [[#|police station]], and we want to stop that.

SydneyRCA - This issue is personal to me because my mom is in the military and she is a counsellor for the military and while being at bases or overseas, being in another country and hearing the sounds of gunshots firing throughout the air or never knowing when you are going to die can be hurtful. So, to take away from that pain some soldiers look to drinking to soothe the pain, but they get attached to it and it could cause them to getting addicted to it. This impacts me because after hearing these stories, I want to do something from preventing drinking from happening just by driving down the road or from hurting the people who are our heroes like the overseas soldiers such as my mom.

CL_aguspalaciosd- This issue is personal to me because many people that I know have problems with drinking and they could not control it and cause fights or they do things they don't now they are doing, also drive and drink caused many accidents and many people died because of that.
