As excerpted from the story,
With current capabilities and requirements, alcohol impairment can often go untracked at school bus operations – or tracked with very limited or random screening techniques. “Every parent treasures their child’s safety,” SOBRsafe CEO Kevin Moore said. “So we asked ourselves, ‘What if we had a solution that screens 100 percent of bus drivers before they can receive keys and operate a bus?'”
SOBRcheck™ is a patent-pending, proprietary device that provides touch-based identity verification and alcohol detection. The information that the device collects is immediately transmitted to supervisors via a user-friendly app. This process, Moore said, allows transportation managers, operation managers and other supervisors to make proactive decisions as opposed to reactive corrections.
When supervisors can proactively make critical decisions by using this data, it is going to improve productivity and save lives.

Regarding the article and product launch, SOBRsafe Chairman and Chief Revenue Officer Dave Gandini stated, “This is powerful third-party validation of our solution, and further evidence that the market seeks to innovate. Especially as bus drivers return to their routes in 2021 – in some cases with elevated alcohol consumption habits due to COVID – the need for uniform, preventative testing is mission critical. We look forward to partnering with school districts, private schools and transportation providers in the leadup to our Q2 commercial release.”

About SOBRsafe™ (www.SOBRsafe.com)
The annual cost of alcohol abuse in the U.S. is $249 billion. Nearly half of all industrial accidents with injuries are alcohol-related, and workers with an alcohol problem are 270% more likely to have an accident. In response, publicly-traded SOBRsafe™ has developed a proprietary, touch-based identity verification, alcohol detection and cloud-based reporting system – SOBRtech™. SOBRtech™ is transferable across innumerable form factors, including personal wearables, stationary access control and even mobile for law enforcement. A preventative solution in a historically reactive industry, it is to be commercially deployed for school buses, commercial fleets, workplaces, managed care, young drivers and more. This patent-pending “Go/No Go” alcohol detection solution ensures that an intoxicated worker never takes the factory floor, or a driver the vehicle keys. An offender is immediately flagged, and the employer (or parent, rehab sponsor, etc.) is empowered to take the appropriate corrective actions.
