Electronic Ankle bracelets to act as Alcohol Monitoring devices

Drinking and driving should never be mixed together but still many people never mind to drive even if they are heavily drunk.

Alcohol Monitoring System, of Colorado have designed an eight-ounce ankle bracelet checks hourly for traces of alcohol and stores that data throughout the day, system will be greatly effective in reducing the no of accidents and crimes due to alcohol consumption.

At least 4,000 people are wearing the gadget today, and another 2,800 are waiting to be outfitted in the 38 states where SCRAM, Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring, is in place.

This is a good initiative took by the government to deal with problem drinkers and all the citizens should extend their full cooperation in this step.
