Futuristic Auto Tech Keeps Drunks from Getting Behind Wheel

Smartplanet.com reports that a new technology besides the breathalyzer test could keep drunks from driving and potentially causing accidents or even fatalities.

Through the use of strategically placed sensors in places like the steering wheel and door locks, the North America Driver Alcohol Detection Systems for Safety, created by QinetiQ, a research facility in Waltham, Massachusetts, would analyze a driver’s skin or breath to determine a driver’s level of intoxication.

Keeping insurance rates down would be an amazing result of this kind of technology!
