Tech in New Cars Will Stop Drunk Driving

Safety technology in cars just keeps getting more and more advanced. Here’s a video demonstrating the new capabilities they are working on to eliminate drunk driving.

Known as the Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety program, it is a collaborative research partnership between the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety, representing 17 automobile manufacturers, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to assess and develop alcohol-detection technologies to prevent vehicles from being driven when a driver’s blood alcohol concentration exceeds the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

The technology is estimated to have the potential to save thousands of lives per year. The research is still in development, and we’ll keep you posted on future updates.
