Cars to Detect Drunk Drivers

Smart cars are paving the way for the future of drink-driving prevention – By refusing to allow a person who has been drinking to drive them.

The revolutionary technology, titled DADSS (Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety) works via a breathaliser mounted on the steering wheel as well as an intelligent engine “Start” button that is capable of detecting alcohol in the drivers blood via an infared light.

These will operate passively – Meaning that as the driver breathes normally, or attempts to start the car whilst under the influence of alcohol, the car will refuse to start.
