Lake Worth, FL (PRWEB) May 15, 2006
In an effort to promote responsible drinking, including efforts to help prevent underage drinking and driving, Graphic Security Systems Corporation (GSSC) announced today it has provided Connecticut law enforcement with its Decoding Lens in a program sponsored by Heineken USA. With the device, a clear credit card sized plastic lens, Law Enforcement Officers can read GSSC’s Scrambled Indicia feature that is embedded in the Connecticut driver license and detect any fake or tampered licenses.

GSSC’s SI VIP Technology has been used on the Connecticut States Driver License Since 2002. However, for security reasons, it has been GSSC’s practice to keep their technology confidential unless instructed by DMV or the Integrators to divulge the technology. The VIP Technology is also used in the state of Oklahoma.
The Tool dubbed the “Verifier” is actually GSSC's SI Decoder D-7C. It reveals hidden information embedded into the Driver's License, which is covert to the naked eye and is only viewable with the SI Decoder. Please see the published demonstration in the newsreel that was recently aired, News Video clipping: http://www.nbc30.com/video/8805353/detail.html
GSSC’s SI VIP Technology will aide in cutting down on the volume of under age drinking that has drastically increased over the years, which in turn may possibly help save lives that could have resulted in fatalities due to underage drinking. In an article published by MADD on April 13, 2005, Senator Lautenberg commented that an estimated 21,000 lives have been saved since the inception and passing of the 21 minimum drinking age legislation. Back on July 17th 1984, when President Ronald Reagan signed the National 21 Minimum drinking age legislation into law to eliminate the deadly “Blood Borders” between states that had different minimum drinking age laws. We at GSSC are trying to get all 50 states on board with our Technology together with our SI Decoders to aide and assist the Law Enforcers, Restaurants, Night Clubs, Liquor Stores and any facility that serves alcohol in spotting fictitious identifications more quickly & effectively.
