    Its rediculous, just something else to waste money on. Same as the back up sensors mandatory by 2014. Will it save some lives? Probably. Could more lives be saved by spending the same money elsewhere? Yes. Will there still be a bajillion vehicles out there grandfathered in without this crap? Yes.

    A hardcore alcoholic who can afford a new car can afford to have it tampered with so that it starts anyway.

    I don't have an issue with it personally. Driving is a privilege, not a right. Until we stop having on average 24 deaths every day due to an alcohol-related crash, I'm willing to go the extra mile to stop it from happening.

    If the guberment wanted to help stop DUIs they wouldn't let laywers and judges hog tie officers with hoops to jump through. It should not take me hours to work a DUI case. The courts should accept roadside intox test and not require field soberity testing with the associated 2 page report.

    It's a privacy issue and means more money I have to spend to maintain something that I'll never use. I am against it. The only people that need this are people already convicted of drunk driving. They're called interlocks and are already in use for such people. We don't need to put everyone in the same boat.

    Just wondering what LEO's think of this proposal. Personally, I like to enjoy some drinks from time to time. Obviously, when I am not going to be driving. However, is it an infringement of civil liberties and personal freedom? Most importantly, personal privacy? As Benjamin Franklin aptly phrased it, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
    While I like the idea, I think it would probably be unconstitutional as it would probably be ruled a violation of your 4th amendment rights. Just like I need to establish reasonable suspicion before I can ask someone to blow in an Intoxilyzer 5000. (ok techinially implied consent says I don't but we all know what happens to the case if RS is not established first). Of course if it's CA they never seem to give a gee wizz about the constitution anyway.

    In addition to being a snot nosed crybaby, it's rather apparent you can't read and comprehend the rules. Why am I not surprised? This is "Ask a Cop" That means you can't post here. At the rate you're going, you never will be able to . The truth hurts you more than any of us could have imagined. A major part of your problem, aside from being a freakin crybaby, is an inability to follow rules or obey the law. Yet, you want to be a cop? Try growing up, and do look up the definition of responsibility. Until you can practice that virtue, you'll be on the outside looking in. Now, instead of wasting my time with a juvenile up past his bedtime, I will take a nap. Oh and don't forget Junior, all of us have been where you say you want to go. That should bother you, because at your present rate, you'll never get there.

    In premise it's a great idea. In practice it will not work.

    It would be great if we could stop everyone from drinking and driving, murdering, raping , pillaging, trolling, etc. However, if people want to do something bad enough they'll find a way around it.

    I'm more of a fan of the devices currently used for convicted DUI offenders. Although, the same applies here as above. If folks want to do something bad enough.... You simply cannot legislate fixes for stupid.....
    Thanks for the reply. From my perspective, I agree 100%. Unfortunately, there are certain actions that cannot be prevented.

    Please be advised that we will post in any direction, or manner which happens to suit us. We, as a forum, will also determine whether or not the subject you propose will be discussed. Although it's possible there isn't one, the wording, phrasing of your post suggests an agenda. An agenda is perfectly within your rights. We simply may not wish to discuss it with you here. That said, any member chooses to participate in your proposed discussion at his/her discretion.

    LaPlaca,

    I did not intend to be a troll. I was just curious about LEO's opinion on this matter. Personally, I agree with ummone about the ridiculous mentally ill liberals in California. But, it is a proposal that I thought would be worth discussion. Anyway, have a nice day. By the way, I am a conservative.
