The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) is a non-profit organization that focuses on making traffic safety a national priority. GHSA held their 2017 annual meeting during September to explore new challenges and opportunities for highway safety and to consider how to respond to vehicle crashes and fatalities.


With the legalization of marijuana on the rise, ALCOLOCK USA attended the meeting to showcase some of their newest innovative products, including DrugWipe®, a line of non-invasive drug detection devices that provides accurate results in only 5 minutes. DrugWipe is the preferred choice for law enforcement and workplace safety, as the device is hygienic and can easily detect several common drugs in saliva, sweat and on surfaces.


“Concerns about drug impaired driving are escalating and we are proud to be able to provide a convenient and accurate way to quickly administer drug testing, keeping roads, communities and work sites safe and drug free” – says Bill Sheppard, Business Development – Commercial Interlocks.


The drug screener is more convenient and efficient when compared to a urine test, as DrugWipe does not compromise privacy and cannot be manipulated. Sampling is also quick and can easily be observed through distinctive colour test lines, making the test ideal for roadside screening in drug impaired driving situations.

During the GHSA annual meeting, ALCOLOCK USA also shared the ALCOLOCK LR, a simple and easy to use ignition interlock device. Equipped with breath signature technology to ensure that accepted breath samples come directly from a human subject and have not been altered, the device offers the most reliable testing on the market.
