Udall Wants "Drunk Proof" Cars

Tom Udall
From consumeraffairs.com -
It's been talked about for years. Congress could make it a law. You would not be able to start your car if you've consumed too much alcohol. Two members of the U.S. Senate, one a Democrat and the other a Republican, have take a step, sponsoring the ROADS SAFE Act, which would authorize $12 a year for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to develop technology that would prevent an intoxicated person from driving a vehicle. The objective, of course, is to prevent drunk drivers from getting on the road and causing fatal accidents. Senators Tom Udall (D-NM) and Bob Corker (R-TN) co-sponsored the legislation, expressing hope their bi-partisan approach will help secure passage.  More News New Mexico

And so this will prevent drunks from driving? FAT CHANCE. What I see is the stupid legislation of forcing manufactures to make cars that might decide not to start for someone who hasn't even had a drink and a system where someone else can lean in and help a drunk driver start his car anyway. This reminds me of the gun laws that are suppose to prevent people from getting shot. Ask Congressman Gifford how those laws protected her from a disturbed person. This is a textbook example of deadheads who insist on "Nanny" state laws. Why doesn't Deadhead Udall focus on getting the budget under control and creating jobs in America instead?
