Don't worry they are legalizing Marijuana in more and more places. People will still be driving while impaired dispite the governments good intentions to baby sit them.

It's been talked about before if you Google it, here's an article detailing the technology:
Ending drunk driving and a need for the police is great, but if the system malfunctions and you're stranded would be terrible. I can also imagine some life and death situations when there is no choice and someone buzzed needs to drive someone to the hospital or some other type of scenario that you can't wait for a Lyft or Ambulance.
This technology might prevent some auto theft. I'd imagine that people who steal cars might do do under the influence.

Imagine if they put in a card reader where you have to insert a valid drivers license for it to start. And then another slot for your credit card to make up for the gas tax...
Random person inserts debit card.
car voice: your balance allows you to drive 1.3 miles, I suggest you stay home
Seems to me that would kinda fall under illegal search and seizure? I know sobriety checkpoints are illegal(unconstitutional?) here in Mi. When I lived in Vegas, they had them. Never saw one because the news broadcast where they were.
So if a random sobriety check is illegal/unconstitutional in MI, how is a random sobriety check going to be legal in MI?
