pipedreams Posted August 4, 2021 Share Posted August 4, 2021 This reminds me of gun control, punish everyone because of a few. "The more than $1 trillion infrastructure package would require that alcohol monitors be installed in all new cars. Within the 2,700-page proposal is a section that mandates that new vehicles have “a system that … passively and accurately detect[s] whether the blood alcohol concentration of a driver of a motor vehicle is equal to or greater than the blood alcohol concentration” of 0.08, which is generally the limit to drive in most states. If the driver has a higher than 0.08 blood alcohol concentration, the car’s system would “prevent or limit motor vehicle operation.” It isn’t clear whether the detection system would have to be a breathalyzer, which requires a driver to blow into a device, or something else." https://www.theepochtimes.com/infrastructure-bill-would-mandate-alcohol-monitors-for-all-new-cars_3933135.html Wonder how much that would add to the cost of a new car? 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
