The Johannesburg International Motor show took place from 16 October to 27 October 2013. Discover Nine – ALCOLOCK™ was there and had a stand in Hall 9 – alongside many recognised fleet management companies and vehicle accessory suppliers.
The show was used as the launch of both the Alcohol Countermeasure Systems (ACS) brand and Discover Nine in South Africa. On showcase was the ACS ALCOLOCK™ V3 – a commercial alcohol interlock.
Visitors to the show were offered an opportunity to trial the V3 unit in a real life scenario. We had an Isuzu pick-up on our stand that had been fitted with an ALCOLOCK™ V3. This gave people a true feel for how the unit operates and just how seamlessly it fits into any vehicle.
Throughout the show there were over 200 tests taken of which 20% were failed and 15% were at very high BrAC levels – this is a worrying stat considering most of those people would have driven home after the show.
The show was an extremely good proving ground for the V3 unit – and as expected the unit performed flawlessly. All the questions that were asked of the V3 were answered comprehensively and no one was left wondering how the unit operates and what capabilities the unit offers an end user. Please feel free to visit our FAQ’s page to answer any of your questions.
It is safe to say that you will be seeing these units used in fleet applications in coming years – and possibly even in personal vehicles.
It is paramount that we as South Africans begin to take action against drinking and driving. Using an ALCOLOCK™ is a real solution – it is a preventative measure and it does not discriminate. The ALCOLOCK™ is the solution to South Africa’s diabolical road accident epidemic.
Look no further than the original ALCOLOCK™ – the most tried and trusted alcohol interlock on the market.
