The National Council for Transport Safety (NTSB) in the US, the government has asked to tell automakers to install alcohol detection systems in all new vehicles to detect drunk driving or driving.



The advice came about after an investigation into a California crash that killed nine – including seven children.

The crash, on New Year’s Day 2021 in Avenal, California, was caused by a disabled driver who was speeding, the NTSB found.

The researchers found that the SUV driver had high alcohol intoxication and was driving too fast.

“Technology could have prevented this heartbreaking crash just as it could have prevented the tens of thousands of fatalities from road and speeding-related accidents,” said NTSB chairman. Jennifer Homendy.

“We need to implement the technologies we have here now to save lives,” he said in a statement.

As a result of the investigation, the NTSB recommended measures to take advantage of new in-vehicle technologies that may restrict or prohibit drivers with disabilities from driving their vehicles, as well as technologies to prevent speeding.

The Security Council has also recommended intelligent speed adjustment systems to curb reckless driving.

“We must remember that technology is only part of the solution. To save lives on our roads, we need to look more broadly at the entire transportation system, which includes everything that can prevent a crash,” he said. homendy.

Speeding is also a problem that is getting worse, according to research.

In 2020, there were 11,258 deaths in crashes where at least one driver was speeding, according to the NHTSA.

The problems of drink-driving and excessive speed are both on the NTSB’s Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements.
