Traffic fees, checks and fines can often make drivers feel hard done by – or even financially exploited. That may well be true in some cases, but in one it most certainly is not: Driving under the influence of alcohol is no joking matter. And that is why various parties, including lawmakers, are always on the lookout for ways to enforce alcohol immobilizers, at the very least on drivers who have had a brush with the law in this area. Indeed, in some countries this is already standard practice. But do we really have to go that far?
Korean company Da Tech has devoted itself to this cause and launched a wide range of devices in its Alcofind series to quickly and accurately gage alcohol levels – something that benefits both the police and drivers who want to check for themselves. However, more often than not, the higher a person’s blood alcohol content is, the less able they are to exert the necessary self-control. At CeBIT 2016 in Hannover, Da Tech is exhibiting a range of personal and professional alcohol testers and – to make sure nobody can drive anywhere intoxicated – the new Alcofind AF-i1, which can be retrofitted to vehicles as a reliable way to stop drivers from starting the vehicle while under the influence.
