App helps catch drunk drivers

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) Nearly 30 Americans a day die in vehicle crashes that involve drunk drivers, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Vahid began thinking about this idea about five years ago.

"I asked myself, 'What are the biggest problems facing this country?' To me, drunk driving is one of the biggest and most outrageous; over 10,000 deaths a ye
