To prevent alcohol and other drug-impaired driving crashes, the NTSB has called for in-vehicle alcohol detection technology, the lowering of the blood alcohol concentration limit to .05 g/dL or lower, alcohol ignition-interlock devices for people convicted of driving while intoxicated and recommended that regulators develop a standard of practice to improve drug toxicology testing. The NTSB has also called for a comprehensive strategy to eliminate speeding-related crashes that combines traditional measures like enforcement and regulation with new technological advances like speed limiters and intelligent speed adaptation technology.

Sounds like good sense technology IMO. Helps in eliminating drunk drivers....eliminating druggies from driving.... and eliminates speeders.

With states allowing recreational drugs (marijuana/weed voted in by druggies) driving while impaired will be even worse than it is now.

Seems to be a lot of anti gov/anti authority threads started by those types lately on this website. Sign of the times I reckon.

Show me the data to prove this. We live in enough of a nanny state. If the goal is to truly save lives then I propose a complete ban on alcohol and cars. We need to stop the issue at it's roots rather than just treating symptoms. Why do we have the need to be drunk/high all the time?

Some cell phones will not work if you are traveling more than xx MPH.
OR so I've heard

As for the Alcohol detections.. Drunk drivers often have a mandate that any car they drive have such a system installed.... An those same drivers routinely figure out how to disable or get around it.

Just use google news and follow news from Colorado if your interested in how making drugs legal has made even more problems with impaired driving (and other crime).

Why do we have to be drunk/high all the time ?? Good question....seems to be the culture way too many Americans are in now.
My generation grew up with alcohol impaired drivers being a big problem. Drug generation came along and drug impaired drivers has made it even worse. Data ? Just google news and be informed.

I don't go along with the we live in nanny state bilge where drugs and alcohol are concerned.

You ask a very good question.. I do not drink. I do not Smoke Weed or use any "Recreational Drug" The reason I don't drink is 2 fold.
Beer.. Well taste wise I might as well drink water. Water is cheaper
Wine.. I've found one.. Just one.. That I don't mind the taste of
All others taste bad (And I forgot to remember the name of that one)
Hard liquor.... Tasts nasty, Very nasty. So I don't drink.. Now if you need a keg tapped and can't figure out how to do it.. I'm your man. but I don't want the contents.

The other reason. which applies to the Recreational Drugs as well.. Is that I have come to value a clear mind...Drugs that mess with my mind I wish to avoid. that Includes Alcohol by the way.

Finally Tobacco (Which I also don't use) My mother was a smoker almost all her life.. her death... Long, slow and hard.

My dad.. I don't think he smoked a pack in his life.

FWIW, even the Egyptians had beer 3,000 years ago. Everyone has a vice, some it's pride. [emoticon]

I think this is just one more case of the government wanting to throw more of our money at a problem that does not affect enough people, but will get some thinking that they do care about us more than a rat's ass.
