Drunk Driving Prevention Technology

drunk driving prevention system technologyNHTSA Drunk Driving Prevention Technology

Within recent years, you’ve probably heard of the IIHS and NHTSA, especially when researching safety ratings for vehicles or watching for recalls on the news. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration focuses its attention on making vehicles safer for drivers and reports back each year on a number of driving statistics. Unfortunately, in 2013, the NHTSA found that 10,706 people lost their lives in accidents that involved the use of alcohol. The scary part is that while this number already sounds too high, this is actually an improvement compared to the year prior.

Although it’s still in development, the NHTSA drunk driving prevention technology for vehicles could greatly reduce the number of drunk driving-related accidents and fatalities. The primary use of this technology is to prevent drivers from driving drunk in the first place. While there is a legal limit of .08 across all 50 states, there isn’t anything actually preventing drivers from getting behind the wheel of the vehicle while over the limit; unless they are of course stopped by a police officer.
