Abstract
Drunk driving is a contributing factor to road accidents in several parts of the world. Road accidents caused by drunk driving are usually fatal and have an adverse on the victims and the government, in the long run. Government policies have been implemented to deter individuals from indulging in drunk driving. Positioning police officers with alcohol breath analysers at vantage points on the road has also employed to curb the menace of drunk driving. However, these strategies have barely been able to reduce the rate at which road accidents caused by drunk driving occur. In this project, alcohol breath analysers have been integrated with the ignition system of vehicles to prevent drunk drivers from moving their vehicles.
