FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky motorists who get behind the wheel after drinking may be outsmarted by their phones with the introduction of a new app from the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety.

The "No DUI Kentucky" application allows other motorists to report a drunken driver with a one-touch dialing feature to contact Kentucky State Police. It also has a blood alcohol concentration calculator and a feature that allows the user to see through the camera to simulate impairment after consuming a number of drinks, from zero to 15.

The app also lists local taxi services, sober ride programs and limousine companies and laws and penalties for driving while impaired.

The app is available to download for free in application sites or at the link in the "Related Links" selection.
