I hope they make it detect people on their phones too. That’s apparently more dangerous than drunk driving…..
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), driving a vehicle while texting is six times more dangerous than intoxicated driving. The Transport Research Laboratory found that writing a text message slows driver reactions by 35 percent, while drinking alcohol up to the legal limit slows reactions by 12 percent. Another study stated that texting drivers react 23 percent slower than intoxicated drivers do.

I agree, but lets take this to it's inevitable use: car senses illegality, locks doors, parks car and dials 911 to make sure you get the help you need from your local law enforcement friends. All in the name of group safety of course.

If the car is that smart, it should just take over as the designated driver and stop drunk driving by just driving itself…..no?

If they had cameras that detect by way of the drivers eyes, the camera could not stop looking at Shepard's painted on eyelashes.

Am I the only one who thinks the exact opposite of what these guys are saying? I'd prefer to just blow into something if it's a requirement.

I've had too many bad experiences with automatic systems to trust their reliability.

Anything that reduces murdering shit-stain drunk drivers has my vote.

So sick and tired of seeing (and worrying about) drunk drivers killing innocent people and then of course surviving their wrecks themselves.
