In the article, “Cars that stop drunk driving” I learned that when Congress passed Biden’s infrastructure deal, a demand that consisted of finding a way to stop drunk people from driving cars was made towards U.S. automakers. This has caused some sort of conflict between whether or not we should continue with that demand and make it possible to do so. Some people believe that we should continue with that demand meanwhile there’s other people who believe we should not. For example, for those who think we should state that drunk driving is a leading cause of death on America’s roadways. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, roughly ten thousand Americans per year are killed in alcohol-related crashes. And for those who believe we should not continue with that demand say monitoring systems may not be reliable. The Alliance for Automotive Innovation has raised concerns that camera-based monitors are sometimes inaccurate. Which could possibly lead to peoples cars shutting off even when they are not under the influence.
Personally I believe that we should not continue with that demand, only because it’s true that maybe it’s not the best idea for someone’s car to shut off when they are not under the influence. Although I also believe that it’s a good idea that something is able to prevent the chances of a crash from occurring.
Do you think cars should be required to have anti-drunk driving monitors?
