WSGW OnLine Poll:   Preventing Drunk Driving  (results)

(November 24 – December 1)

The recently passed national infrastructure package includes a requirement for automakers to develop technology to prevent drunk driving. Automakers have until 2026 to meet this mandate for all new vehicles.

Supporters, including Mothers Against Drunk Driving believe it will virtually eliminate the number one killer on America’s roads.

Others say they appreciate the safety aspect, but are concerned about what the technology could add to the cost of vehicles, especially for drivers that don’t drink.
