The Drivealyser, by AlcoDigital, aims to prevent drink driving by disabling the ignition of a vehicle if the driver has too much alcohol in their system.
Launched this month, Drivealyser can be fitted to trucks, vans and cars, as well as buses, coaches and mini-buses.
Drink driving harms companies, destroys reputations and ruins careers. Yet every year headlines are made by professional drivers who have caused crashes, injury and death by driving under the influence of alcohol.
The Drivealyser is a combined breathalyser and immobiliser that aims to prevent a vehicle starting if the driver has more than a pre-set level of alcohol in their system, normally a quarter of the UK drink driving limit.
Even low levels of alcohol can impair judgement leading to scrapes and dents. Fitting Drivealyser across a fleet ensures drivers are effectively free of alcohol, reducing minor damage and insurance claims.
The makers claim fraudsters won’t be able to fool the Drivealyser. Re-tests are required at random intervals to prevent the system being tricked by a ‘friend’ providing a single surrogate breath sample at the start of the day.
AlcoDigital is the UK’s largest breathalyser retailer and has been supplying individual, commercial, clinical and Police use devices for nearly 10 years.
