Laser DUI Detectors Being Developed

Laser DUI detectors are on the way! Imagine driving down the street and having a police laser passively check your car for alcohol vapors.  According to the Huffington Post, scientists at the Military University of Technology in Warsaw, successfully tested the device by aiming its laser at a car passing by at a distance of up to 20 meters. The car's interior had been filled with alcohol vapor, simulating the exhalations of a drinker inside the car.If this technology is successful, the laser DUI devices could be employed much like red-light cameras or used by stationary police like radar speed...
