DISCOVERY HUB James River Transportation

Welcome to the Discovery Hub:

The Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety (DADSS)™ Program:

  • First–of–its–kind, vehicle–integrated, alcohol detection technology that passively detects a driver's Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) and prevents the car from moving while their BAC is at or above the legal limit of 0.08% (0.05% in Utah)

  • Allows you to learn about the dangers of alcohol–impaired driving and the innovative technology that Virginia and James River Transportation is helping to develop to make its roads and highways safer

Key Partners in the DADSS Program:

  • The Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety (ACTS), a Virginia nonprofit funded by the world's leading automakers;

  • The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA); and

  • The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicle's Highway Safety Office

  • James River Transportation

  • The DADSS Program is one of the most important government and private sector partnerships in recent years.  Public-private partnerships like DADSS have led to innovations that enhance our everyday lives, such as the internet, GPS, and microchip.
