Toyota Keeps Boozers Off the Road

1/16/2007 8:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

ToyotaThe days of Hollywood celebrities being busted for DUI may be numbered. Japanese car maker Toyota is developing a fail-safe system that will detect if the driver is too drunk to cruise The Strip.

Utilizing a myriad of detection systems, from sweat sensors on the steering wheel to detect the amount of alcohol in the blood, to sensors that detect abnormal steering, to a special camera that tells if the driver's pupils are not focusing--Toyota might be just what the celebrity public relations rep ordered.

Paris HiltonOf course, getting Tinseltown's party girls (and guys) to give up their swanky European cars for a Breathalyzer Toyota might be as tough for them as figuring out the proper entrance ramp for the Glendale Freeway.

That sounds like it could leave you stranded very easily if you were sober and just nervous about something

That's a good idea...just one problem with that. Rich celebrities DON'T DRIVE TOYOTA'S! They have expensive cars that cost as much a house and them driving a little Toyota is laughable!

If they have to BLOW anything , Paris , would have never made it out the driveway . She would declare it her best friend and then dump it for her best freind . Dickhead .

Every time I see a picture of Paris I just want to grab a pair of scissors and snip off the hook at the end of her snout!

Paris looks so beautiful in this photo.

Haters are just sick,jealous people.

Usually, they wind up in prison or in locked mental facilities for the rest of their lives.

In time a celebrity like Paris may drive when drinking and one of two things may happen, she will either kill someone else by not seeing where she is going, or kill herself, maybe then the world will wake up to themselves. If she killed someone else from drink driving, maybe then she will hang for it.
