Bipartisan Legislation Introduced
Bipartisan legislation was introduced in March to require auto manufacturers to install technologies aimed at preventing drunk driving as standard equipment in all new vehicles. The HALT Act was introduced by U.S. Representatives Debbie Dingell (D-Michigan), Kathleen Rice (D-New York), and David McKinley (R-West Virginia). If the bill passes, the U.S. Department of Transportation will issue a requirement that drunk driving prevention technology must be installed in all new passenger vehicles.
