Now Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is opening a new front in its war on drunk drivers, and it's getting help from the Alliance for Automobile Manufacturers and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

A new highway bill pending before Congress would instruct all 50 states to require all motorists convicted of driving under the influence to equip their cars with interlock systems that shut down a vehicle when a measured amount of alcohol is detected.

Husband of a co-worker got a DUI, suspended for a year. When he did get his licence back the total cost of fines and breathalyzer unit in his vehicle was $8,000. This is more about making money

Former MADD president arrested for DUI


That it is.

Anyone with two synapse that fire properly can figure ways to defeat, circumvent, fool or disable the thing too.

Just another Bull$hit idea from our beneficent Representatives.

and if the driver 's got to blow in a thingie to get car to start , what to stop someone else to doing this for him ??

There's nothing to stop someone else breathing in it - so, then they will now have to up the technology to include face and/or finger print recognition. This will now cost 4X what the simple breathalyzer would have.

I know a fellow who lost his licence, DUI, said it cost ~ $12k (not including lost wages) between fines and the cost of the breathalyzer. Another guy I know had two beer while fishing, blew 0.05 and the cops yanked his licence for 3 months (automatic) that'll cost him about $15k in lost wages. For 2 beer. Note, the legal limit in BC is 0.08
