Could in-vehicle alcohol detection systems reduce drunk driving?

The world is quickly changing, with more and more safety technology available every year. One item that may find its way into cars relatively soon is the in-vehicle alcohol detection system.

What safety devices protect you best on the road?

Every year, we see changes and improvements in auto safety.

Heading out on the roads after lockdown? A few safety tips
