Drink! Don't Think! Drive! Kill! Or, Via Technology, Maybe Not

In an effort to combat the spread of inebrious motoring, a variety of technologies were discussed at a symposium sponsored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, which is now curiously headed by a man named Chuck. Since the Motherchucker joke is far too obvious, we'll move on to the bits and pieces. Drunkards can possibly look forward to games of Simon Says, subdural blood alcohol concentration sensing through a steering wheel and/or anklets and of course, breathalyzer-based ignition interlocks. We're so torn on this one. On the one hand, if you're soused, don't motate. On the other hand, the Big Brother implications of the technology really freak us out. Nevertheless, if it'd been implemented sooner, the lives of Mel Gibson's PRmy troops would be much easier.
