Anti Drunk technology installed on cars prevent the driver to start the engine -

Drunk driving could be one of the reasons of the accidents that occurred on the road. To reduce the number of road accidents caused by it, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is coming up with a technology that will not allow the driver to start the car even if he or she fails alcohol test .

agency recently unveiled the prototype of what is called Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety (DADS), which consists of two parts. One is a discreet breath test that can be mounted on the steering wheel or the door of the driver's side. It can detect alcohol in your breath, even if you sit far enough away from him while the other is a touch sensor that is installed in the ignition button or shift that will measure the rate of alcohol concentration (BAC) of your finger. Both devices are able to detect if your BAC is over the legal limit of 0.08 and if it is completed, then it does allow you to start the engine.

There seems to be a good solution for impaired driving, however, General Director of American Institute drinks, Sarah Longwell, argued that it would simply stop many social drinkers officials who have a glass of wine with dinner to start their car.

As car manufacturers are coming up with their own anti-driving technology, the head of the NHTSA, Mark Rosekind, said the agency would not force them to use their system and there are still many things to test and improve and it would take some time to be released for public use.
