Ending drunk-driving deaths is in sight, experts say

Abstract:
Emerging nanotechnology may put an end to a costly social problem that years of public awareness campaigns have not -- deaths caused by drinking and driving.

"Technology in itself, in time, could almost eliminate impaired driving," said Andrew Murie, CEO of Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada.

About 1,500 people a year die in Canada from alcohol-related accidents on roads, recreational vehicles and boats.
