According to a story at the Web site of TV station KOAT, New Mexico may have found the solution to drunk driving in that state, and it’s so obvious — all we need is talking urinals!
The state has ordered 500 talking urinal cakes that will deliver a recorded anti-DWI message to bar and restaurant patrons who make one last pit stop before getting behind the wheel.
The top of the devices feature the state DWI slogan — “You drink, you drive, you lose.”
The state spent $21 for each talking urinal cake for the pilot program but will ask bars and restaurants to pay for future orders if the idea catches on.
The cakes have enough battery power to last about three months.
