In the article, “You Decide: Cars That Stop Drunk Driving?” (BTW, btwuser, 2021) I learned that there was a demand by U.S automakers to find a way to stop drunk drivers. They thought of making a breathalyzer device that disables your vehicle if your blood alcohol level is too high. There was another device, a camera to capture your behaviors while you were driving. The camera will capture risky and unsafe behavior, making your vehicle slow down and automatically pull over to the side of the road. There are agreements with the issue and disagreements on the issue.
I think that it would be safer to have installments like that on your car. I believe this because it will create a safer environment and will have fewer deaths since most drunk driving incidents make up 30% of all traffic deaths. If we install this system, we will protect first responders and create less traffic. It can also help with insurance costs.
Do you think we should install this system? Why or why not?
I am interested in your post, “You decide Cars that stop drunk driving?” because I think the cars should also have a system where they stop cars if you are drunk and driving.
One sentence that caught my attention was, “I think that it would be safer to have installments like that on your car. I believe this because it will create a safer environment and will have fewer deaths since most drunk driving incidents make up 30% of all traffic deaths.” This sentence caught my attention because I also think that there should be installments in cars just so cars can be stopped and there can be less risk of having an accident.
Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I think that it is interesting in the way you support your argument.
I am surprised by your post “You Decide: Cars That Stop Drunk Driving?” because this type of technology inside of a car sounds like it really could prevent a lot of deaths from drunk driving. Many people drink and drive and many police officers don’t see them, this also could help the police.
one sentence that stands out for me is “They thought of making a breathalyzer device that disables your vehicle if your blood alcohol level is too high” I think this is fantastic because it will make driving a lot safer. The breathalyzer will reduce the number of drunk drivers on the road.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this topic was very interesting and caught my attention. I think these systems should be installed in vehicles to make safer driving.
I agree that we should install this system. The high level of traffic deaths in relation to drunk driving shows that we need to take action somehow, and installing these devices would get to the root of the problem. Results of this like less traffic and safer environments for first responders are positive. Here is another article on strategies for lowering incidents of drink driving: https://www.dwiminneapolislawyer.com/strategies-reduce-prevent-drunk-driving/
I agree with you about how having these installments on your car will positively affect stopping drunk driving. 30% of traffic deaths being due to drunk driving is unacceptable, and I think these devices could really help. Here is an article that mentions another way to detect drunk driving I think you would like: https://jalopnik.com/the-ntsb-says-all-cars-should-come-with-tech-to-prevent-1849563247
I really liked this post and its concise nature. I found it very compelling and striking that 30% of all driving related accidents are due to drunk driving. I also really liked how you mentioned insurance costs, and how the installation of these safety devices could affect the rates at which you are billed. May I suggest you read this article about those installations and their pros and cons:https://www.intoxalock.com/ignition-interlock-devices/drunk-driving-prevention/.
Yes, but i don’t know if people will actually use it or will listen to it if they do, so its a good concept in practice but most the time drunk people make dumb decisions and will probably not use it during the fact and will probably not use it make it useless
Awesome article! I agree with your take on why we need to implement a system like this to reduce our traffic deaths and drunk driving overall. Although I think implementing a breathalyzer or camera that can notice bad driving behaviour is a little unrealistic. Putting these in all new cars might be difficult. I’m not exactly sure what should be implemented but for sure something has to change!
