The government is testing new technology to curb DUI/DWIs

Coming soon to a car near you are autonomous, passive, alcohol-blood testers. The Department of Transportation (DOT) is testing several new anti-drunk driving technologies it the hopes of rolling it out as an optional add-on to all cars by the end of the decade. Drunk driving accidents cause thousands of accidents and cost around 10,000 lives annually in the United States. It is believed that these new technologies can severely reduce or even eliminate drunk driving altogether.

There are two technologies under development. The DOT hopes to use either one or both in tandem to curb drunken driving. The first are touch pads that can be placed on the steering wheel or ignition switch that detect blood alcohol content through the skin. The other system detects blood alcohol level through the driver's breath. Both systems would analyze in real time and kill the car engine if alcohol levels are too high.

If you are confronting DUI/DWI charges, then you may want to call a defense attorney as soon as possible. These charges could result in a suspended license, fines, jail time or other penalties. A lawyer can help ensure that you are treated fairly by the courts and prosecutors. This is your future; you don't want to leave it up to chance. Courts and criminal defense are complicated procedures. You are required to track dates, forms, evidence and present it to the court in the appropriate format. A lawyer can guide you through the process and present a vigorous defense.
