Last month, Washington became the fifth state — joining Arizona, Illinois, Louisiana and New Mexico — to require alcohol-ignition interlocks for anyone convicted of drunken driving. Last week, the Nebraska Legislature approved such a bill 43-0. California, Colorado and Hawaii are considering interlocks for first offenders. In all, 46 states allow interlocks in some cases
Alcohol-ignition interlocks are wired into a vehicle's engine. The driver blows into the device before starting the vehicle; if it detects a certain blood-alcohol content, or BAC, the engine won't start. Once the car starts, the driver must blow into the device at random intervals to keep the vehicle running.

What if your crusing down the HWY at 70mph and you can't get to the tube in time? Your car just dead stops or something?
Can you say road hazzard?
