What do you think?

I think that ALL new vehicles sold in the U.S. should be factory equipped
with some sort of ignition interlock to prevent someone who has alcohol in their system from even starting their vehicle. Right now, a court can require such a device as a result of a DUI. IMO, I think it's be better to take steps to prevent someone from driving under the influence in the first place... rather than reacting AFTER.

Some of you may be thinking that this doesn't affect me, I don't drive with alcohol in MY system. OR... Would add cost to a new vehicle. My answer: You don't have to actually be the driver that's under the influence to be affected... You could be the person they hit... or your kids could be. As for cost... So what? What is a life worth?

I don't want to pay for it and don't want it in my cars... It would just drive the cost of a new vehicle up, and people who would need them would just get a non drinker to blow in it for them....like some do now when people have been caught DUI in such a equipped vehicle.JMHO

idk either... rappy's right. there are some who have it now, and all they do is have someone else blow in it... it would just bump up the cost, without realistically doing anything... yea there are those who are honest and could really be beneficial, but then there's like x20 who aren't...

I see nothing wrong with having a few drinks and driving. I do it on a regular basis.

No offense to the police but if they did that the state's and county's would lose a ton of money. That will never be a option until after they get there money first.

Sounds like government run moneymaker. I am 50 years old and know quite a few people my age that drink and drive been doing it for 30+ years. None of which have ever had an accident while under the influence, myself included. A few driinks doesn't make you an automatic hyway menace. It's like in Phoenix we have mantatory pool fences if you have children. But every year we have drownings. I grew up in Michigan it was only steps to the lake from my front door to miles and miles of lake. No one had a fence protecting you from the water. I never heard of any drownings. My point is you can make all the laws you want it won't protect you from the irresposible people in this world, just revenue for the government.

I think they should but people would get someone else to blow in it for them like a buddy of mine did with his.I'm sure it would keep alot of the drunk drivers off the road though.I think the buddy of mine had to pay 1500 to get it installed and so much a month...so it would drive the prices up sum .thank God I never killed anybody back when I used to drink
