Every year in the U.S., drunk driving claims more than
10,000 lives and costs approximately $199 billion.
Move over MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), there’s a new deterrent to driving while impaired with an easy to remember acronym: DADSS.
The Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety, or DADSS, program is a collaborative research partnership between the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety (ACTS), 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 (BAC) BAC exceeds the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Very promising and hopefully coming in the near future. I believe this system could catch on and become as commonplace as airbags in all cars. Here’s to a DUI free future brought to by moms and dads of all kinds.
