More MADD TyrannyFriday, July 31, 2009
It seems we are getting close to seeing anti-DWI locks/control systems become federal law for “convicted drunk drivers.” Remember the kind of people who are convicted of this crime: people who have never harmed anyone, and people who fall asleep in their car, while parked, because they see that as the better option as opposed to driving after drinking. I suggest that these devices will soon be on every car sold or purchased in America, and the control device will be focused on much more than alcohol on your breath. For instance, a fingerprint or ID reader that will not allow your car to start if the government’s database determines that you haven’t followed the government’s multitude of mandates, such as getting your mandatory swine flu vaccination, registering for Selective Service, etc. From the article:
The current version of a federal transportation funding bill, which could be debated by Congress this fall, requires all 50 states to mandate the devices for anyone convicted of drunken driving or risk losing federal highway money.
