DRINK DRIVING PREVENTION THROUGH INBUILT TECHNOLOGY
Drink Driving is a far-reaching problem in all kinds of societies in the modern world. In New Zealand, it is perpetuated by a persistent drinking culture. However, all contributing factors converge to one conclusion embodying a simple choice; whether one is knowingly or unknowingly under the influence, a person can choose to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. Our solution involves an in-built breathalyzer in vehicles, connected to the ignition and featuring a weight-sensor in the d
river’s seat. The driver is
breath-tested to which a positive result unlocks the ignition and the vehicle can start. A negative result means that they are over the legal blood alcohol limit and the ignition will remain locked. The weight sensor in
the driver’s seat prevents abuse
of the system. A change in weight will reset the system and the driver will have to retake the breath-test. This system disallows people the choice of getting behind the wheel when intoxicated.
3. BUSINESS SECTION
Our vision is to eliminate the potential for harm and destruction to drivers, all those on the road, and property from intoxicated individuals, by providing an infallible, high-quality, in-built alcohol-testing system fit for all personal and public vehicles.
3.2 Industry Analysis:
In-vehicle Breathalyzer Industry
In-vehicle Breathalyzer industry
involves the manufacture and installation of devices which test the alcohol-limit of the driver inside a vehicle. It is the broadest but sufficiently specific industry which encompasses our relevant competitors (i.e. ignition interlocks.)
