Matthews.ie are the only passenger transport company in Ireland to have alcolocks installed, and every Matthews coach and support vehicle carries one of the devices. Alcolocks are connected to a vehicle’s ignition system and activated by the driver blowing into a tube. They will prevent a vehicle’s engine starting if the driver’s alcohol level exceeds a pre-set safety limit.
