High-Tech Ankle Bracelets Used To Deter Repeat Drunk Driving Offenders

Media Type: Print/Online

A county in Kentucky is trying a new method to deter repeat drunk driving offenders. A high-tech ankle bracelet, part of the Continuous Alcohol Monitoring Program (CAMP), tests for alcohol in the perspiration of the person wearing it, at regular intervals. Jefferson County, where Louisville is located, plans to train judges and legal professionals this week about the monitoring system and how it works.
