Does This Bother Anyone Else But Me?

"A blue-ribbon panel in the U.S. - which Transport Canada, MADD Canada and automakers are members of - is considering having the interlocking devices installed in all new cars so that, if a driver is over the legal blood-alcohol level, the car won't start.

The group is studying various nanotechnologies, but one of them uses sensors embedded in the steering wheel or gear shift that can measure blood-alcohol levels through the skin - much as an exercise machine can measure a heart rate."

As we all know, technology works well all the time, without any glitches, so there won't be a chance of getting into your car, late at night on a dark and cold road, and not having it start because it thinks you're over the limit. And, no one will come up with a way to beat this.
