And What if the Tech Isn’t Accurate?

Infrastructure Bill To Force Automakers To Include Tech To Stop Drunk Driving | The Daily Wire

I think in the end, we just won’t be allowed to drive our own cars anymore. Self-driving cars will do it all for us.

One part of the $1 trillion infrastructure package, hailed by President Joe Biden as a “monumental step forward for the nation,” is a new requirement for automakers to find a technological tool to prevent drunk driving.

“Under the legislation, monitoring systems to stop intoxicated drivers would roll out in all new vehicles as early as 2026, after the Transportation Department assesses the best form of technology to install in millions of vehicles and automakers are given time to comply,” reported The Associated Press.

Alex Otte, the national president of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, described the legislation as “monumental,” and the “single most important legislation” in the group’s history that marks “the beginning of the end of drunk driving.”

I really can’t argue with the necessity of eliminating drunk driving and I’m not going to try.

I wonder if this is the best way to go about it, but I don’t have any better suggestions to offer either.

I’ve been claiming for quite some time that they’re eventually not going to allow us to drive at all. This is just the next step in that process.

I don’t know how upset I am about that either. We will finally have flying cars soon, and frankly I don’t trust many of my fellow drivers in a car that can move in three dimensions. I think once we have flying cars, they will have to be self-flying. All of them.
