As someone with an accent, I occasionally struggle with the primitive voice recognition systems that are in cars. But it seems like this technology could provide a safety improvement and test for all kinds of incapacitation.

       I take dangerous and powerful drugs for the pain of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. They cause my speech to slur. When I make presentations (I'm an aerospace engineer) I now must open by assuring my audience that I am not drunk (tho some might dispute).   

       Take your detector and put it where the sun don't shine, cause it sho-nuff would give a false positive on ME.

       Do you mean it would shut the car down if the driver/owner was determined drunk?

       boris//dentworth -- I'm talking about a device that would be installed for those convicted of DUI, not in every car.

       I think you ought to say that in the beginning.   

       btw, from what part of the world is your accent?
