The driver is identified by a bracelet and when leaving the premises they are asked to undergo a breathalyser test. If the designated driver tests negative (0 BAC), they are rewarded with a number of gifts. If the designated driver tests positive they are encourage to return home by another means of transport or to let a sober friend drive them home.
