DOT is Pulling Out all-of-the stops to deter motorists from driving drunk this holiday
Craig Richardson is helping to spread the message that the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is pulling out all-of-the stops to deter motorists from driving drunk this holiday. According to the NHTSA “Drunk driving crashes are no accident – they are 100 percent preventable. They all connected to human choices and errors.
To spread their urgent safety message, NHTSA is kicking-off its annual Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign and is working to end drunk driving on U.S. roads altogether through innovative technology called the Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety (DADSS).
“Each year, too many lives are lost to drunk driving, particularly around the holiday. Now we have an opportunity to prevent future drunk driving tragedies by acting today,” said U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “We want everyone to be safe this holiday, which is why we’re urging the public to make the right choice, follow the law and drive sober.”
With annual 10,265 drunk driving deaths, Federal and Virginia state officials announced a $5.1 million funding to help further develop and deploy DADSS technology that could eliminate drunk driving. DADSS, a public-private partnership between the government and the world’s leading automakers, continues to develop safety technology to help passively detect a driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and prevent drivers from starting a vehicle if they are at or above the .08 legal BAC limit in all 50 states.
