- Automakers Pursue DUI Systems That Protect Drivers
In a recent statement released by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), it has been announced that an existing agreement with automakers to continue research into advanced alcohol detection systems has been extended for another five years.
At the Phillips Law Group, we strongly urge all motorists to exercise extreme care when behind the wheel and if you or someone you love has been injured in a drunk driving accident that was not their fault, contact our trusted car accident lawyersin Phoenixtoday at 1-800-706-3000 to explore your legal options.
The partnership is comprised of 15 automakers, with these non-invasive systems being explored in an effort to help prevent vehicles from being driven by a drunk driver when their blood alcohol level is in excess of 0.08 BAC.
Currently, the automatic system is planned to be non-obtrusive to a non-intoxicated driver yet is able to prevent drunk drivers from getting behind the wheel.
In a statement from David Strickland, the NHTSA Administrator:
The DADSS Research Program has shown significant promise to date, offering real potential in the future to prevent several thousand deaths annually.
With recently released 2012 auto statistics indicating an increase in accidents involving drunk drivers, it is hoped that by the early stages of 2015, a research vehicle will be created that included the use of both touch-based and breath-based detection systems.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
Phillips law group is the best around!
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
My paralegal , Caroline , was on top of her game - very responsive and always answered any questions I had and in a timely manner . My attorney Rob ,was the best attorney I ever had . He explained everything in great detail and had a great sense or humor . He really knows how to bring light To tough , unfortunate situations - I would absolutely recommend them at anyone -
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
