The Biden regime’s equity-focused “infrastructure” bill has a provision buried in it to mandate all new motor vehicles have some type of DUI prevention system to keep people from starting their own cars.
A $1 trillion infrastructure bill under debate by the U.S. Senate includes a provision that directs U.S. regulators to mandate a passive technology to prevent intoxicated drivers from starting vehicles and avert more than 10,000 deaths annually.
For more than 15 years, automakers and others have studied potential technological fixes to address the roughly one-third of annual U.S. traffic deaths that involved impaired drivers.
The legislative push has won the backing of the advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the auto insurance industry and some alcohol trade associations.
[…] Some convicted drunk drivers are required to use breath-testing devices attached to an ignition interlock before starting their vehicles.
The Senate bill does not specify the technology but said it must “passively monitor the performance of a driver of a motor vehicle to accurately identify whether that driver may be impaired.”
Do Americans have any clue about the Orwellian nightmare our ruling oligarchs are creating for us?
