The Mohegan Sun casino is taking steps to combat drunken driving and the changes will be evident next time you visit.
Following three DUI related deaths in 2009, both the Connecticut State Police and the Mohegan Tribe have stepped up DUI monitoring campaigns.
All casino employees have taken four-hour training courses for certification on alcohol awareness so that they know the signs of someone who is intoxicated. An individual who is thought to be intoxicated will be taken to the lounge and offered a free Breathalyzer test. If the individual is 'tagged' as intoxicated in the casino's computer system they won't be able drive home and can't puchase any alcoholic beverages at the casino for 24 hours. They will however offer to call a cab for you.
Pretty cool idea of using technology to prevent intoxicated casino goers from driving drunk.
