A Singapore nightclub called “Zouk” is the first establishment to adopt the Pee Analyzer, a urinal-based system that detects the amount of alcohol in a guy’s body and then issues a warning if the result is over the legal limit.

Here’s how it works:

When a customer hands his keys to to the valet at the beginning of the night, he is handed an RFID parking pass for identification purposes. Whenever the guy pees, a device in the urinal reads his BAC and updates it to an RFID reader.

An eye-level sign above the urinal then tells the user if he’s over the legal limit in the form of a message that says:

“Maybe you’ve had one too many to drive; call a cab or use our drive home service.” But what if the drunkard is too sloshed to read or even comprehend the warning?

When a customer leaves the bar, he hands his RFID parking pass back to the valet. The valet scans the card at another RFID reader and if another warning comes up, the valet suggests keeping the keys and getting the man a ride home.

Over the past 12 months, there were 2141 cases of drunk driving in Singapore, some of which resulted in fatal car accidents.

During the Pee Analyzer’s first trial, it tested 573 drivers over a two-week period and saved 342 people from driving home drunk.

America already has implemented its own version of the Pee Analyzer. Some bars and clubs in Michigan have urinal cakes that also read BAC levels and verbally warn visitors if they are over the legal limit.

“Hey, listen up. That’s right, I’m talking to you,” the cake says, adding, “Had a few drinks? Or maybe a few too many. Then do yourself and everyone else a favor, call a sober friend or a cab. Oh, and don’t forget – wash your hands.”
