If you thought the TAPS Act was bad, wait until you read this.
Our politicians are hard at work introducing bills that promise to turn America into a mirror image of China.
Rep. Kathleen Rice's H.R. 3374 bill, otherwise known as the End Drunk Driving Act, would put breathalyzers and ignition interlock devices in every new car.
According to the LI Herald, Rice wants to force auto manufacturers to put breathalyzers and ignition interlock devices in new cars by 2029.
"The End Drunk Driving Act would mandate that, within 10 years, all cars sold nationwide come equipped with technology that would detect a driver's blood alcohol content and prevent the vehicle from moving if it is above the legal limit."
With close to 280 million cars in the U.S. and over 226 million drivers licenses, nearly every American would be affected by this and other bills.
If Rice's bill is passed it would effectively turn 226 million people into suspects.
SEC. 3. Advanced Technology To End Drunk Driving:
(a) In General.–Not later than 10 years after the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall issue a final rule prescribing or amending a Federal motor vehicle safety standard that would prevent operation of a motor vehicle when the operator is under the influence of alcohol. The standard–
(1) shall prevent the operation of the motor vehicle if the operator's blood alcohol content is above the legal limit; and
(2) shall require such technology to be–
(A) reliable and accurate;
(B) set at the legal limit;
(C) unobtrusive and fast;
(E) functionary in extreme environments (both hot and cold); and
(F) easily maintained.
If Rice's bill becomes law, then motorists in Utah, who have consumed one alcoholic beverage would not be allowed to drive.
