The Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety (DADSS) program is a key element of MADD's Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving® and is the result of a cooperative agreement between the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the world’s leading automakers, working through the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety. The project’s goal is to develop an inexpensive, publicly-supported and extremely accurate technology that passively senses if a driver is at or above the illegal limit of .08 BAC. If the driver is drunk, the DADSS technology would prevent the vehicle from starting.
We continue to look forward to the day when there are no more drunk driving deaths or injuries, and DADSS has the potential to eliminate drunk driving once and for all. Please join us in the fight by pledging to support the Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving and its three vital components today.
