Sensor, driver monitoring systems and vehicle monitoring systems that can detect driver intoxication while preventing the vehicle from moving or bringing it to a safe stop exists or is being developed. Your support will help ensure it is applied in every car.
The United States recently passed legislation requiring all new cars and trucks to have impaired driving prevention technology by 2027. Experts estimate it will save about 9,000 lives in the US every year. The same legislation in Canada can help protect you and your loved ones from the harm caused from impaired driving.
Impaired driving continues to be a serious problem on Canadian roads and highways. In-car technology has the potential to prevent 80% of alcohol-impaired driving.
PETITION THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA TO INTRODUCE LEGISLATION TO REQUIRE
ANTI-IMPAIRED DRIVING TECHNOLOGY
We the undersigned respectfully call on the Government of Canada to introduce legislation to require anti-impaired driving technology in new vehicles which will virtually end alcohol impaired driving in our lifetime.
