Man arrested in Waterford after truck he was driving crashes into sea – Vehicle Interlock would have stopped this

We at Lion are working hard to address this issue through the provision of our DS25 RS Vehicle Interlock systems.

This accident could have been so much worse. We hear time and time again that drivers are taking control of vehicles and could potentially cause an accident or fatality. This would not only involve themselves but innocent road users. We at Lion are working hard to address this issue through the provision of our DS25 RS Vehicle Interlock systems. The design incorporates our world renowned fuel cell alcohol breathalysers combined with vehicle immobiliser technology.

The fitting of one of these instruments will provide protection to the driver, the road using public and also ensures that the vehicle remains protected for the owner. If you have a fleet of transport vehicles, buses or company cars how can you not afford to protect your staff, the public and yourself from prosecution should the unthinkable happen?
