Too Pissed To Drive?

Hi Folks:

Would this get the attention of the typical East Coast Bad Attitudes from Bahston to Balmor? I've got your #1 right here!@#$%^&*(

All kidding aside, could the next highly publicized road rage incident be the impetus for this, or something similar, to be the next ESC?

Ok, that's starting to cross the creepy line. A self driving car is one thing but a car that's going to monitor your emotions and expressions and then act on it? I don't know, that kind of tech makes me think of George Orwell.

As a vigilant & focused driver, I don't want vehicles doing anything for me. I never liked ABS, or Airbag systems (I've heard horror stories even when no accident; plus let's include the shrapnel cases), to the drive by wire. I want to feel connected to the road.

I'm adamant about those who drive under the influence or while distracted (which is just as bad here), is reckless endangerment or unsafely operating a deadly weapon. To have more freedoms removed, because there's a group of people who makes horrible choices.... I don't know I could

Hi Wayde: I'm familiar with the meaning in OZ. In this …e, it really doesn't matter. Yeah, I thought of it as a replacement for "Blow & Go" (breathalizer sampling before the vehicle can start) and the inherent hacked wiring which comes with it. Coming from the Philly area originally, I was curious as to how it would play out. Cuba's first response is not surprising at all. But like
