Volvo in new High Tech Big Brother Mode.

Swedish car manufacturer Volvo has announced it is experimenting with some novel safety technology which IN-VOLV(O)ES a special ignition key that will control the top speed of a car.

Wait for it……The Driver will be required to blow into an in-built, Breathalyser lock and then fasten the seat belt before the car will start!

This two-part safety check will ensure that if Alcohol is detected (which locks out the seat belt) or the seat belt is not fastened, the car won’t start! Great idea methinks!

The breathalyser lock is integral with the driver’s seat belt catch.
The figures from the EU commission show approximately 10,000 deaths on the roads each year in alcohol- related accidents! That’s not a figure to take lightly or ignore.

The wearing of seat belts, although well documented to play a large part in reducing death and serious injury in car accidents still has not been universally accepted in Ireland. Young drivers and young Parents are particularly at fault here. The example set by Parents when carrying their offspring, by always wearing their seat belts, will be picked up by the youngest of children and will set the kids on the right track when they themselves start to drive.

Volvo have for many decades been associated with the highest standards of safety in car manufacture and although a lot of their vehicles look like a cross between a Tiger Tank, a Sherman, and the Space Shuttle, they are to be admired in their quest for further safety on the roads. Of course, like most new technology in the Automotive field, it takes quite a time for something as innovative as this new gizmo, to be universally accepted, but it’s an excellent idea and will undoubtedly save many lives when implemented.

BUCKLE-UP and CLUNK-CLICK….it will save your LIFE.
