A truly disturbing picture is emerging about how interwoven judges, prosecutors and private corporations are working to install ‘Alcohol Ignition Interlocks’, in every vehicle. A detailed look reveals how they also want ‘Automated Traffic Enforcement’ and ‘Automated Speed Enforcement installed at EVERY intersection and HIGHWAY across the country!
Since 2000 the IIAS has given testimony 33 times in support of ‘Automated Speed Enforcement/Red Light’ cameras and ‘Alcohol Ignition Interlocks’
FYI, ignition interlock laws now exist in every state but they’re not MANDATORY yet!
Ignition interlock devices is going to happen its only a matter of when!
In June of this year, I warned how the Feds want cars to come standard equipped with alcohol sensors. And in April 2015, I wrote an article warning everyone that our government wants cars to come standard equipped with interlock devices.
Now DHS and judges are trying to make it a reality…
Would you be surprised to know there is actually an annual “Alcohol Interlock Symposium” that’s been going on for 15 years or since 2000!
DHS provided a speaker at last year’s symposium:
DHS was kind enough to publish their “Interlock Data Privacy And Security” presentation written by Christina Abernathy.
“The 14th International Alcohol Interlock Symposium held in Washington, D.C. has now concluded. This event attracted more than 150 attendees representing 13 countries from six different continents, making it one of the largest and most successful to date. The North American presence was strong with representation from more than 15 jurisdictions.”
The Symposium featured four judges, two NHTSA representatives two MADD representatives a World Health Organization representative and many more:

David J. Friedman is the Acting Administrator of the NHTSA but didn’t want the public to see his presentation but you can bet it’s nearly identical to Maureen Perkins.
Maureen Perkins is a Program Analyst in the Impaired Driving Division of NHTSA, click here to read her presentation.

There’s even an Association of Ignition Interlock Program Administrators (AIIPA) that’s been working with the NHTSA since 2001 to put ‘Alcohol Ignition Interlocks’ in every U.S. vehicle. Click here to read the numerous ‘Alcohol Ignition Interlock’ articles they’ve published. Clickhere to go to the Ignition Interlock Device website.
There’s also an American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, Ignition Interlock Working Group.
And as if that wasn’t enough there’s even a Coalition of Interlock Manufacturers (CIIM), who stand to make huge profits once they’re installed in EVERY vehicle.
“The CIIM is an ad-hoc organization formed by three of the nation’s leading ignition interlock manufacturers to combine members expertise and experience and speak with one voice to reduce the carnage caused by alcohol impaired drivers. With its “one-voice,” CIIM strives to bring the most credible, factual information on ignition interlock devices to public policy discussions.”
Let’s see how factual CIIM really is, below are excerpts taken from CIIM’s Ignition Interlock page :
- Lobby Congress to maintain strong provisions in all highway legislation to responsibly expand the use of ignition interlock devices.
- Partner with NHTSA to provide guidance and other resources to assist with implementation and compliance issues.
- Work with NHTSA to develop a plan to update the agency’s ignition interlock Technical specifications, and to develop model service delivery and reporting standards.
- Collaborate with State Highway safety agencies, and NHTSA to underwrite and participate in workshops for continuing education to Judges, Probation Officials and Prosecutors as laws, technology, and research improve the options to use technology to safely manage impaired drivers.
- Seek to strengthen DWI courts by joining other stakeholders in advocating that Congress provide funding so DWI courts can provide ignition interlocks and/or alcohol monitoring technology at subsidized costs for indigent and long-term users.
- Provide expert, technical assistance on ignition interlock devices and how to effectively implement a successful ignition interlock program.
- Work with judges to understand the benefits of requiring offenders to use an ignition interlock.
So let’s recap what CIIM is saying…
1.) They’re lobbying congress EVERY year to pass a bill making it MANDATORY that every vehicle in the U.S. come standard equipped with an ‘Alcohol Ignition Interlock’ device!
2.) They’ve partnered with the NHTSA/DHS to implement ‘Alcohol Ignition Interlock’ devices.
3.) Perhaps the MOST SHOCKING collaborate with Judges, Probation Officials and Prosecutors to implement ‘Alcohol Ignition Interlock’ devices!
4.) Strengthen DWI courts, in other words, raise the penalties and fines so EVERYONE profits: courts, police, judges automakers, NHTSA, AIIPA and the COIM to name a few!
5.) The AIIPA and the COIM will provide their own EXPERTS to police and the courts!
This is the corrupt American justice system at it’s worst, private corporations wear down Congress year after year until they get what they want. Have you ever wondered why our courts uphold driving is a privilege not a right in America? Well now you have your answer. Too much money is riding on ticketing and arresting American motorists, state and local budgets would come crashing down if anything changes and the justice system would be seriously affected.
If only it ended there, TEN automakers have agreed to install automatic emergency brakes in all their vehicles:
“Ten major automakers — Audi, BMW, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo — have each committed to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that they would include automatic emergency brakes in their vehicles!”
Automatic emergency braking will happen automatically if a driver doesn’t not apply the brakes to avoid a rear end collision! The systems uses on-vehicle sensors such as radar, cameras or lasers to detect an imminent crash and warn the driver.
Safety advocates say its a backroom deal that allows automakers to avoid the possibility that the Transportation Department will make it a law in the near future.
The commitments were made to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and the Insurance Institute for Auto Safety (IIAS).
