Rick Scott, Tom Udall Want Built-In Software in All New Cars to Cut Down on Drunk Driving

Insisting it will save thousands of lives, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., teamed up with U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, D-NM, and U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., this week on a proposal to develop software to detect alcohol and add it to new cars. 

Udall introduced the “Reduce Impaired Driving for Everyone (RIDE) Act” on Wednesday with Scott as the main cosponsor. 

“The fact is that deaths from drunk driving are completely preventable – so we have an obligation to do everything we can to prevent such senseless tragedies. I’ve been in this fight for a long time, and we’ve made real progress. But we are still losing thousands of lives each year to drunk driving crashes. Every drunk driving death is one too many – and one too many family who is forced to confront unimaginable pain. With this legislation, we have the opportunity to help end drunk driving for good by putting alcohol detection technology in all new motor vehicles. We owe it to those we’ve lost—to honor them with action,” said Udall. 

“It is heartbreaking that we have lost so many to the irresponsible actions of drunk drivers. Now is the time to act so we never have to experience another tragedy,” Scott said. “I’m proud to join Senator Udall to introduce the RIDE Act, which promotes the development of critical alcohol detection technology that could save 7,000 lives every year. One life lost is too many, and this technology will go a long way in protecting our families and communities.”

According to Scott’s office, the bill would fund federal research of technology  “that detects whether a driver is impaired over the legal limit and, if so, prevents that driver from starting the car.”  The proposal would also create a pilot program to test the technology, including using federal General Services Administration cars and some state and local government vehicles. The bill would mandate the use of the software in all new vehicles. 

Udall’s bill was sent to the U.S. Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee on Wednesday. Dingell has introduced the companion bill over in the U.S. House. 

The bill has the support Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the National Safety Council.

Ben bu projeyi yapabilirim. Yapılabilir bir proje olduğunu ispatlayabilirim. Benim maddî imkânlarım ve Teknolojik bu projenin prototipini yapmaya yetmiyor. Sayın Senatör sizden destek bekliyorum.

HELLO My name is Engin AĞAÇ, Türkiye – İstanbul To prevent drunk driving some firms from all over the world develop project. Although those projects aiming to prevent drunk driving are perfect projects, they cannot prevent drunk driving at a level of 100%. That is, a driver can drive his vehicle while he is drunk if he wants to.The process schemes of the developed projects are as follows: First of all the driver has an obligation to pass an alcohol test every time he wants to start his vehicle. If the driver is not drunk, he is allowed to start his vehicle. To prevent driver from taking alcohol after starting his vehicle, the driver asked to pass alcohol tests every time that is designated by the system. If the driver is a non-drinker or not drunk, why does he have to pass alcohols test when he wants to use his vehicle or after starting his vehicle? If the driver is not drunk, why should the case of “having another person in the car who is drinking alcohol or drunk” results in immobilization or preventing from starting vehicle? Is the device in the vehicle sensitive to alcohol components? To overcome these problems I have been working on a project for a while. I have a project that I developed software scheme for the time being. In my project, I have developed a software scheme by utilizing speed sensor, voltage sensor, time sensor, alcohol meter, environment smell sensor, driving license and face recognition algorithms. The software scheme is ready down to the last detail. According to this software scheme one can; 1. Prevent drunk driving of a working vehicle at a level of 100%. 2. Absolute prevention of driving without license. You should register their licence for once only. Later it is sufficient to have the licence with you when you want to use the vehicle. 3. Prevent red light violation. 4. Prevent exceeding of speed limits. Due to the fact that the licensed is registered to system, in such violation traffic ticket is issued to whomever driving the car at that moment. 5. Wherever in the world the vehicle is started, the personal informatiof the person who drives the vehicle can be reached. 6. Immobilize a working vehicle. Only the persons that the owner of vehicle gives permission can drive. I can’t put in to action this project, of which the software scheme is ready, due to lack of financial and technical opportunities and not being able to find support for my project. I made some negations with some public and private universities but we don’t agree on some commercial issues and they don’t want to make confidentiality protocol . I hope that you appreciate the importance and the value of working on such a project. I am looking forward for investor to this project. If you wish we can talked in a detailed manner. This project is very benefical for people. All over the world there are firms that make similar projects, but they can not prevent drunk driving for sure. That is if the driver wants he can drive while he is drunk.I have been working for this project for a while. I have developed this project quite a lot and you can find detailed information about this project on This project has some other feature besides from preventing drunk driving. In this project I have utilized some sensors. There is detailed explanations on the web site. If you accept I would like to talk with you in a detailed manner. I can make this project having different features. But my financial and technological oppurtunities are not sufficient to make this project. If you accept I would like to make this project with your partnership. I am sorry but. I don't know english. But we can get into contact via translater. Although drunk driving is forbidden all over the world, still drunk driving cases exist. A lot of accidents occur due to the drunk driving. In such accidents many people injured or became disabled and unfortunately there are cases resulting death. Furthermore, millions of dollars financial damage occurs. To prevent such accident some institutions and companies construct projects or support such projects. In the projects, those have the aim of preventing such accidents from occurring, a connection is established between the engine and alcohol meter via an immobilizer system. The working principle of this kind of project is established as follows: while the driver indents to start the vehicle he must pass an alcohol test. To prevent the case of driver uses alcohol after starting the vehicle, the driver asked to pass alcohol tests every time that is designated by the system. This way it is tired to avoid driver to take alcohol after starting the vehicle. 1. WHAT IS THE NAME OF THIS PROJECT The name of this project is GOST “safe car driving technology” 2. WHAT IS THE SCOPE OF “GOST PROJECT”? GOST project is established by utilizing speed sensor, voltage sensor, time sensor, alcohol meter, MQ3 alcohol scent sensor and face recognition algorithm. The process schema of face recognition algorithm is organized in accordance with the project and by utilization of the features of sensors mentioned above, new software is established. 3. WHAT CAN BE ACHIEVED VIA “GOST PROJECT”? A. Drunk driving can be avoided by 100% B. Driving without a driving license can certainly be prevented C. Considering real time traffic tickets, the ticket is issued to the driver who is driving at that moment. D. Wherever in the world the vehicle is started, the personal information of the person who drives the vehicle can be reached. 4. THE TECHNOLOGY OF GOST PROJECT CAN BE UTULIZED ALL VEHICLES? Yes it can. This technology can be utilized in vehicles while keeping the originality of it. 5. WHAT ELSE GOST PROJECT OFFERS? With this project, even a running vehicle can be prevented from operating. 6. WHERE CAN BE GOST TECHNOLOGY APPLIED? Similar technologies are embodied vehicle as a “must have device” in many Europe countries. Specially in school services, bus companies, cargo and logistic companies and lately in private vehicles it is embodied as a “must have device” 7. WHY DO PEOPLE PREFER TO USE THİS DEVİCE? The companies those are aware of the importance of their business or expecting to provide better service, to demonstrate that they can provide safer service compare to other companies, and considering security of life and property, want to utilize this device. WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES OF GOST PROJECT FROM OTHER PROJECSTS? 1. Do you know, for certain, the one passes the alcohol test is the driver himself? 2. How can you prevent a person to pass the alcohol test besides from the driver if there is more than one person in the vehicle? 3. If the driver is a non-drinker or not drunk, why does he have to pass alcohols test every time he wants to use his vehicle or after starting his vehicle? 4. What can be done in case of driver chance during the day or driver changes in “stop and go” cases? 5. If the driver is not drunk, why should the case of “having another person in the car who is drinking alcohol or drunk” result in immobilization or preventing from starting vehicle? 6. Is the device in the vehicle sensitive to alcohol components? 7. Why should a conscious alcohol user pass an alcohol test when he uses a vehicle? 8. A driver can pass alcohol test by wearing transparent gloves. What can be done in that case? GOST project is designed considering such circumstances and the driver is under control from starting the vehicle to stopping it. 9. What are the other superiorities of GOST project? You can’t drive a vehicle without having a driver licence even the vehicle has started. The owner of the vehicle or other persons want to drive the vehicle should register their licence for once only. Later it is sufficient to have the licence with them when they want to use the vehicle. 10. The stopping conditions of running vehicle are defined. 11. Some countries expect zero tolerance while in some countries it is permitted to 0,08 promile. I am looking for a angle investor, who I can share profit, to make this project. To make this project I need an investor. Would you turn this project into an investment. I can answer your questions via translater. With this project of mine, I can prevent drink driving up to 100%. Even if you try you can not drive a vehicle even it is already started. I can prove that this project can be done to your engineers. Can you prevent drunk driving 100% by putting achohol meter ti vehicles. Are you süre that you can control the driver for sure, in other words how can you be sure that someone else passes the achohol test.Why must Thé driver have to pass achohol test every time he wants to drive during the day. Do you want to... How can I express This to you... I am ready. Would you like to invest on This project. I am looking for an investor who We share The profit. We can talk abort details. I recommend you to look at other projects first. I am asking as clear as I can " Can you say that you can make a better project?" With this project I can prevent car robberies for sure. Without the permission of the owner you can not use the vehicle even it is working. To use your vehicle you have to introduce your driver license to device. The device will then recognize you. After that it is enough to have your license with you to use your vehicle. At the traffic, whoever using the vehicle at the time of traffic summon will be issued to traffic ticket. The owner of the vehicle will never be issued a traffic ticket at such cases. In this project, it is enough to introduce your driving license to the device only once. Then every time you want to use your vehicle it is enough to have your license with you. A driver is absolutely not be able to use some else’s license. Only ones who have introduce their driving license can use the vehicle. I am looking for an investor for this project, which requires electronical software, due to the fact that my financial conditions are insufficient. How would you like me to prove you that this project can be done. I can talk with your engineers via my translator. If you consider to invest we have to meet in istanbul face to face.

You seem to be doing a good job. I would like to see the U.N moved out of New York and into The Hague. It is a drain on resources better directed elsewhere..... as in the States. It is useless. The idea on cars and drunk drivers is great. America needs to seriously look at the Education of our children. Europe is far ahead of us in education. Students leave school trained to do a job or headed to a career path. Bring back Technical High School education. Get people who are able bodied into the workforce. Stop the ridiculous expensive investigations that prove nothing and waste the governments time and money. Vote in term limits! Thank you for your service to the country and Florida.

Also build a device that can detect corrupt politicians.

Better to spend time and energy on a system that detects if the driver is a US citizen with a license.

Along with the alcohol detector, ALSO put a well-hidden cellphone signal blocker in every car. And, put some actual cops out on the roads regularly to enforce the driving laws!!!

No such thing as a "cellphone signal blocker" for a car exists. There are jammers, which are highly illegal since they broadcast signals that interfere with everyone's cell phone, including during emergencies. Perhaps you should stick with what you know well, flipping burgers.

So how is the alcohol going to be detected? Sampling the passenger compartment air? That would get false hits from passengers being driven home by a designated driver. It would get misses when the driver simply keeps the windows open. Forcing the driver to blow into a tube? That's invasive and the internet will be flooded with devices to mimic an unimpaired human. This will be a waste of money. It's not that we don't have a problem, it's that this will cost lots of money and it will not be successful.

I heartily agree - any kind of "breath test" would be ineffective. I could blow up a balloon before going to a bar, get sloppy drunk, and let the balloon test my condition. Great idea, but will need a genius to figure it out - maybe check pupils of eyes? I don't know....

Or you could pay $5 to one of those guys holding the cardboard signs to blow into the tube for you, assuming that he's not hammered.
