BDA Auto Interlock
The Auto Interlock System is a handheld breathalyser mounted to the dashboard of an auto and hooked up to the vehicles ignition. Previous to driving, the driver has to breathe into the device so that it can gauge a BAC (blood alcohol subject material) browsing. If the driver is within legal limits, the device permits the engine to turn around and start the car. Pretty advanced technology made for the safety and prevention of accidents on the roads.

Once the auto interlock commences and it is on the road, the driver should do a breath check periodically for longer drives. If the BAC is an illegal stage (ie over the legal limit), the headlights will begin flashing and the horn honking until the ignition is turned off. This assures that the driver does not fool the gadget by obtaining a sober friend blow into the machine just before he or she drives away, as very well as avoiding the driver from resuming to drive.

More often than not, it is a great device for protecting lives and the lives of other drivers on the road and in the bigger picture keeping the death toll on the roads down! The auto interlock system has proven time and time again to be successful in achieving such results.
