THE SOONER IT'S FUNCTIONAL THE SOONER WE MANDATE THEM:

Nissan to test auto Breathalyzer (Kyodo News, 7/24/07)

Nissan Motor Co. said Monday it will join local authorities Aug. 1 in testing an onboard Breathalyzer designed to curb drunken driving.

The system, which measures alcohol in the breath, disables the ignition when the driver is deemed to have consumed more than a certain level of alcohol, the carmaker said.

The device will be installed in vehicles used by local government staff in Fukuoka, Tochigi and Kanagawa prefectures, according to Nissan.
No one is so naive as not to concede they'll be required in our Puritan Nation.

Mandate them for those with a history of drinking and driving. I don't want one in my car.

Liberty? More like more nannyism.
