Breaking: Forget Self Driving Autos....you are going to have to have an Interlock
NTSB says all vehicles need alcohol detectors and the law will soon require them
[link to www.foxbusiness.com (secure)]

Uncle Joe Biden doesn't want you driving drunk.

NHTSA is already working on the topic as the infrastructure bill signed into law by President Biden in 2021 included a requirement for all vehicles to be equipped with passive alcohol interlocks, which would make them inoperable if a high blood alcohol level is detected.

The law dictates that regulations be developed within three years and gives automakers two years to comply.

NHTSA and 17 automakers have been developing and testing a passive breath test and a touch system that uses infrared light to measure the blood alcohol level through the skin

Is that the whole system or just a plug for one?

NHTSA and 17 automakers have been developing and testing a passive breath test and a touch system that uses infrared light to measure the blood alcohol level through the skin as part of the DADSS (Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety) program.

Sounds like they will be chipping you to drive soon.

What they really want is the future means to lock you out of your car for any reason.

Yes at the very least it is another system in your car that can fail.

But much worse is all new cars are connected to the internet always meaning another system for hackers or even the government to disable your car.
