Hyderabad: Drunk-driving can be curbed by a selective breath checkpoint methodology, according to a joint study by a research unit at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Rajasthan police. The study suggested setting up of checkpoints at random areas as drunk drivers often change their route to give a slip to the police.

The researchers employed the selective breath checkpoint methodology in which the checks were conducted at unpredictable places. The Hyderabad traffic police offcials also  started surprise drunken driving checks which reduced number of cases, said senior traffic officials. However, some of the tech-savvy tipplers in the city formed a WhatsApp group to hoodwink the city police.
