Preventing drunk driving has always been a number one priority for governments, police and car manufacturers. Thanks to emerging technology, absolute road safety is becoming a much more attainable ideal than ever before. Automaker Volvo recently announced that its future vehicles will pack an AI-based feature that will attentively track eye movement to determined if the driver is distracted or intoxicated.

If the system detects warning signs — this can include a failure to consistently keep eyes on the road or hands on the wheel, the technology will alert Volvo's on-call assistance centers which will then issue a call to check on the driver. If the person fails to answer, the vehicle has a "semi-autonomous feature" that can slow down the car and bring it to a stop in a safe spot. This feature will surely go a long way to preventing drunk driving and accidents on the road.
