Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching. In 2015, 45 people were killed on Super Bowl Sunday in drunk-driving accidents. Frito-Lay hopes to reduce the number of impaired drivers on the road this Sunday with their new “Tostitos Party Bag.”
A micro-controller installed in the bag detects small traces of alcohol in your breath. After detecting alcohol, the bag will either show a green circle or a red steering wheel depending on whether alcohol is detected. If alcohol is detected the red steering wheel appears with the message “Don’t Drink and Drive” and provides a $10 off Uber code during February 5th Super Bowl Sunday.
Additionally, the bag contains “Near-Field Communication” technology that calls an Uber from a phone that simply taps the bag. Frito-Lay, Uber, and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) have all teamed together with hopes to remove 25,000 drivers from the roads during Super Bowl Sunday this year.
