Finally a car that can put a rest to drunk driving! Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Ricchie, eat your heart out.
Nissan is testing a new drunk driving prevention technology in Japan, where an on board breathalyzer will sniff the amount of alcohol in driver’s breath. And if the amount is more than what is legally allowed, ignition will be disabled by an interlock mechanism.
Toyota is doing something similar where they will detect unsafe drunk driving by detecting the sweating pattern of the driver and how he is handling the steering wheel.
A big hurrah for Japanese car makers.
