Federal lawmakers explore automotive tech to stop drunk drivers

Intoxicated drivers cause serious and sometimes deadly car accidents in California every year. A new bipartisan bill circulating the U.S. Congress seeks to develop and require technology within vehicles that would prevent ignition by drivers who have consumed alcohol. The Reduce Impaired Driving for Everyone Act of 2019 calls on automakers to install alcohol detection systems in all new vehicles by 2024. Lawmakers believe that the law would prevent approximately 7,000 deaths every year.

Opioids cause psychomotor and cognitive impairment, so those who take opioids and drive raise their risk for a car crash. In California and across the U.S., the opioid crisis is contributing to car crash rates, but there is debate as to whether rates are rising. One study shows that while 2% of crash initiators had opioids in their system in 1993, that percentage was 7.1% in 2016. On the other hand, fewer opioid prescriptions are being written.
