Drinking and driving is never, EVER good! There are plenty of ways to get home safely, including personal breathalyzers to let you know when you're safe to drive.
Because if you're not driving safe, you can get into accidents or worse. And now, with the intent of reducing drunk drivers on the road, researchers have unveiled the newest weapon for detecting alcohol: Lasers.
Lasers could be the answer to detecting alcohol in a moving vehicle. Here's how it works:
"After the laser is shone through a speeding vehicle, a mirror bounces it back to a detector that can sense small concentrations of alcohol. ...
The device could be fooled, as the scientists admit, by alcohol exhaled by tipsy passengers, or a spill in the car. Or open windows, or air conditioning or fans... but anything to narrow down the number of cars stopped by police could help, they say. "
