Isotrak buys breathalyser company

Isotrak has acquired Alcolock GB Ltd, which supplies breathalyser immobilisation systems to the bus, coach and wider commercial vehicle sector.

Alcolock’s breathalyser technology is integrated with a GPS unit enabling customers to retrieve data and analysis of its driver community via a web portal. If the alcohol content of a driver is measured above the legal or other lower pre-set limit, the vehicle is immobilised and an alert also sent immediately, allowing organisations greater control over (and compliance with) driver safety standards.

Isotrak chairman Jim Sumner said: “Given DVLA statistics showing that alcohol-related bans in the sector have increased by 59 per cent in the past three years, the emphasis on safety and compliance in the commercial vehicle sector is higher than ever.”
