Default Get Ready for a Blow Job

our dear government thinks everyone needs to give their car or truck a blow job before you can drive yourself to the bar to get a drink and have a reason to give a blow job.

https://www.foxbusiness.com/lifestyl...-detectors-law

Quote:
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is officially recommending that all new cars and trucks be equipped with alcohol detection devices.

The decision comes following an investigation into a head-on collision that took place on New Year's Day 2021 in Avenel, California, between a speeding SUV being driven by an impaired driver and a pickup truck that left nine dead.

​"Technology could’ve prevented this heartbreaking crash — just as it can prevent the tens of thousands of fatalities from impaired-driving and speeding-related crashes we see in the U.S. annually," NTSB Chair Jennifer Homendy said in a report.

"We need to implement the technologies we have right here, right now to save lives."​

The NTSB, which has no regulatory authority itself, has told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it should implement a requirement for the systems along with a program that would incentivize automakers and consumers "to adopt intelligent speed adaptation systems that would prevent speed-related crashes" even when alcohol is not involved.

According to the NTSB, there were 11,654 fatalities occurred in alcohol-impaired crashes in 2020, which represented approximately 30% of all accident-related deaths.

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, but allows the Department of Transportation to extend the periods, if technically necessary.

Unlike the systems currently mandated by states for drivers convicted of DUI offenses, which require them to breathe into a tube before starting their vehicles. 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.

Details on how the final version of the technology will operate are still being worked out, but the current aftermarket interlock systems typically cost around $60 to $150 to install and $60 to $80 per month to calibrate and monitor remotely, according to manufacturer LifeSaver.

Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst for the ACLU, said the organization applauds efforts to save lives, but that this technology raises concerns about the mishandling of personal information.

"There are a lot of ways that safety can be improved that don't involved invading people's privacy. Keeping the data in the vehicle would help address that," Stanley said.

"I hope the regulators recognize the seriousness of this issue and don't mess around with how the information collected is managed by the automakers."

NHTSA says on its website that "in order to be considered for widespread deployment, the DADSS technology must be seamless, accurate, and precise, and unobtrusive to the sober driver. It must also be proven reliable to be installed in the vehicle fleet and publically favorable."
or....how about banning booze... oh, right, we tried that, abject failure....ok, how about red flag laws to take away booze from those who are suspected of abusing it or of driving after drinking? oh, right, that would be an intrusion into people's rights (but taking their guns away is just fine they tell us).



of course, no one will develop a work around to defeat such measures, like having someone else blow it, or have someone else start the car before swapping seats.....nah.....we aint that clever.....

If approved, the GOV will take over and control this device's industry, expect the big guy to position a company that will provide him with a minimum 10% cut of gross sales.

I'd sooner buy an EV than any car with an alcohol starter interlock.

How do these devices comprehend air from lungs versus a compressor or other air source?

It can't be that difficult to chemically produce and aerosolize breath.

I would also valet park. They leave the vehicle running.

Effing BRILLIANT, until they figure out the scam, and encrypt it with a DNA verification.

The device is no worse than the "bait and switch" title of this thread....
I came here expecting a completely different experience...

Honestly, the bigger danger is the dickweeds on their phones...talking, texting, facebooking, ...

Figure out how to solve that and you'll save a lot of lives.

So if there were technology that would prevent drivers from using their phones in their cars would you support it as forced standard equipment on all cars?

If it forced hands free or worked only under zero motion, yes.

I'm not sure about the "forced" part. It could be inherent with a bypass option like a passenger airbag.

Tough question. The cellular technology has a lot of useful purposes, such as Waze navigation. Cars could easily implement cellular jamming devices to make the phone inoperable while in motion, but one has to ask "What about the passenger".

There is no easy answer, but at the end of the day, the driver needs to quit touching the phone. Maybe cellular location services will evolve to the point that they can differentiate between the location of the driver and the passenger, but I'm not banking on it.

At the end of the day, it all boils down to how parents raise their children. GWiz never touches the phone while driving.
