USA: $12 Million Annually on Ignition-Interlock Devices

Freitag 2. Juli 2010 von htm

The Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 2010 includes $12 million in funding for development of alcohol-detection devices that could be installed in all cars, the New York Times reported June 25.
The government and the U.S. auto industry have been working on an improved version of the ignition-interlock device, which prevents the vehicle from starting if the driver has more than the legal limit of alcohol in his or her system. The bill would increase program funding from the current $2 million annually, calling for $60 million over five years — an increase backed by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, among others.
