Breathalyzer Technology May Be Installed in All Vehicles

The future will bring many changes to technology and one change may be having alcohol detection systems automatically installed in every vehicle. If two agencies have their way, all vehicles could be made with these systems in order to protect roadways from drunk drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, the technology is being tested right now. In fact, it has been in the works since 2008 when these two agencies started the Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety initiative. They are working on the technology to not only ensure it can be used in all types of vehicles, but also to make sure that it is affordable enough for manufacturers to agree to install it.

While there is already technology that can detect whether a driver has been drinking, it is used primarily by police departments as a punitive measure for convicted DUI offenders. The NHTSA hopes to make this technology more prevalent to significantly reduce all drunk driving accidents and related fatalities.
