The bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill–the one that both Republicans and Democrats are supporting–includes a provision requiring all new car makers to build in alcohol-detection devices that would make it impossible for drunk or impaired drivers to start their cars.
The 2,700 pages of the bill, according to the Washington Free Beacon, include this:
A section titled, “ADVANCED IMPAIRED DRIVING TECHNOLOGY” . . .mandates new vehicles include “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 .08, in which case the system would “prevent or limit motor vehicle operation.” Automobile manufacturers would have a three-year grace period to comply with the regulation.
