- Automakers Pursue DUI Systems That Protect Drivers
In a recent statement released by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), it has been announced that an existing agreement with automakers to continue research into advanced alcohol detection systems has been extended for another five years.
At the Phillips Law Group, we strongly urge all motorists to exercise extreme care when behind the wheel and if you or someone you love has been injured in a drunk driving accident that was not their fault, contact our trusted car accident lawyersin Phoenixtoday at 1-800-706-3000 to explore your legal options.
The partnership is comprised of 15 automakers, with these non-invasive systems being explored in an effort to help prevent vehicles from being driven by a drunk driver when their blood alcohol level is in excess of 0.08 BAC.
Currently, the automatic system is planned to be non-obtrusive to a non-intoxicated driver yet is able to prevent drunk drivers from getting behind the wheel.
In a statement from David Strickland, the NHTSA Administrator:
The DADSS Research Program has shown significant promise to date, offering real potential in the future to prevent several thousand deaths annually.
With recently released 2012 auto statistics indicating an increase in accidents involving drunk drivers, it is hoped that by the early stages of 2015, a research vehicle will be created that included the use of both touch-based and breath-based detection systems.
