Alcohol in traffic – Assisted driving – Car & mobile

-

In 2018, 244 people died on German roads from accidents in which drunkenness played a role. Experts are demanding alcohol immobilizers in all new cars. Can technology alone solve the problem?

Almost two years ago, the grand coalition wrote the following sentence in its coalition agreement: “To increase traffic safety, we will enable the legally compliant use of modern technical aids such as Alcolocks.” Alcolocks or Alkolocks is such a miracle word from the new world of supposedly intelligent technology: an automated immobilizer for drunk drivers. Wonderful idea, if you think that the car simply refuses to take part in one of the greatest threats to road traffic. In 2018, the statistics counted exactly 35 658 alcohol accidents, of which almost 14 000 were injured and 244 people died; you don’t really need more arguments. In any case, a year ago the German Transport Court Day dedicated a working group to the Alkolock. In addition, at EU level from July 2024, the installation of an interface for “alcohol interlock systems” is mandatory for new registrations. This week the traffic judge’s day will meet again, but an immobilizer law is not yet in sight. We are working on it, the Federal Ministry of Transport announced.
