The Reduce Impaired Driving for Everyone (RIDE) Act promotes the research and development of advanced alcohol detection software. It will also create a path forward for the technology to be a requirement in new cars. 

In New Mexico, there were 118 drunk driving deaths in 2018 – about 29% of traffic deaths in the state.
