In July 2019, the Driven to Protect team attended the Salem Fair in Salem, Virginia—the largest fair in the Commonwealth. Attendees included residents from all over Virginia, particularly the southwestern region.
Both a demonstration vehicle and the Learning Experience Trailer were on display to educate attendees about the DADSS technology, the history of the program, and the Virginia DMV’s support for the Driven to Protect Initiative. Visitors to the Driven to Protect exhibit were eager to test out the prototype sensors and learn about the technology’s real-world application to prevent drunk driving.
Attendees’ personal anecdotes showed that drunk driving has affected many residents of the Commonwealth, whether directly or indirectly, and reinforced the need for vehicle-integrated alcohol detection technology. We enjoyed speaking to and sharing the Driven to Protect mission with so many enthusiastic Virginians!
