Heath Shuler, a U.S. representative, recently introduced MADD's newest legislation touted as an end to drunk driving. The legislation is known as the Research of Alcohol Detection Systems for Stopping Alcohol-related Fatalities Everywhere, or ROADS SAFE, and would require that the technology be installed in every vehicle. The legislation would use a $12 million fund that was set up by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to pay for the technology, which would disable a vehicle from starting if a driver is found to have a blood-alcohol content over 0.08 percent. The legislation is currently being reviewed by the House Committee.
