Uber wants to know if you are drunk

Uber

Uber is great for those nights when you've hammered down too much booze.  If you can't drive a car, do you have the ability to enter the info for Uber to pick you up? The ride share service wants to develop their app technology so they can tell if you are drunk.  

The technology will be able to track users’ typos, how precisely they click, walking speed and time of day. This will hopefully be able to tell if they’re intoxicated or not. If they are, Uber will match them with a driver accordingly. Though the idea is still pending application, Carpenter thinks it would be safer for everyone. He says, “It would be a hundred percent safer than what we’re doing now for us to have an idea of what we’re going into.”
