The article read about it was going to use some technology that checks through the skin, no blowing required.

Oh great, what could possibly go wrong with that.

Iím guessing a lot of you guys that are for this, are against gun control. But, your using the same lines as the anti gun nuts. The world can be a dangerous place, giving away our freedoms one at a time in the name of safety is not going change that.

I'm not sure, but I don't think there is a "right" to drive so they may be on perfectly legal grounds to put whatever dumb buttocks law or restriction in place they want.

But I'm not sure that the drunk drivers are going to be using vehicles with the gizmo installed, might be out of their price range after a few DWI OR DUI's.
They're already probably driving without that pesky license thing, or that nuisance insurance, or that silly blood alcohol content law. Do we really think another law is going to stop them from driving under the influence? That philosophy has worked so very well elsewhere.
We're getting "beaver structure" close to the meme about banning all drivers to combat drunk drivers.

besides won't all this become moot when we are all riding in electric self driving cars? wink

In my case you are guessing wrong. I am a supporter of the 2nd, I am not a supporter of drunk driving.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Maybe if we enforced real drunk driving laws, instead of letting people rack up double digits offenses....

I shouldn't have to prove I'm sober to drive.

Am I the only one that finds it disturbing how many are willing to give up freedoms for a false sense of security especially here?

Why not just let the credit card company track any alcoholic beverage purchases and shut down the car when one is made?

That actually was my guess. Against gun control, but using the same phrases as gun control folks.

Good guess.

So does that mean that having a bottle in the glove box is now accepted. Blow into the tube before you start the car and then start to drink. I think I will make shot glass adapters for the cup holders ... there could be a new market .... I am going to be rich grin

Couldn't be that hard to find a way to defeat the gizmo. Or heck... just leave the car running in the parking lot when you head into the saloon.

Think positively. Could be your childís life that is saved, or you entire family! Yes, it might be a few seconds of inconvenience.

Wonder if commercial pilots should be tested also.
