Russian motorists will be obliged to install "alkozamok"

The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation plans a mass introduction of devices that block the ignition of a car in the event of alcohol being detected in the driver's breath. The corresponding concept should be worked out by the end of the year. It is reported by Kommersant with reference to the minutes of the meeting of the department with potential developers of "alkozamkov".

At the moment it is known that by October the issue with the options for providing Russian car owners with the aforementioned devices should be resolved. In addition, by the end of the year, the department plans to work out a mechanism to "stimulate" potential manufacturers of "alkozamkov".

According to the information from the publication, the meeting was attended by representatives of Meta Research and Production Company, ITELMA Research and Production Enterprise, NIIMA Progress JSC and Omega LLC. Moreover, Meta already has a ready-made device, but it has a number of disadvantages.

For example, in order for the device to correctly perform the test and not block the ignition by mistake, the driver is prohibited from eating, smoking and drinking water before the test. It is also not recommended to use perfume, shaving lotion, and mouthwash. In general, the device requires serious work.

However, even after eliminating the above-described "inconveniences", there will be nuances that require attention. In particular, how does the device “understand” that the driver has passed the test (in the case of a single exhalation)? If the device monitors the presence of vapors while driving, the lock will "react" to a drunk passenger.

However, there are "snags" not only in technical component of know-how. In the future, "alkozamok" will receive the status of "measuring instruments" and will have to undergo regular checks. Thus, according to Yaroslav Fedoseyev, a representative of the NTI "Autonet", the mass installation of such devices will "generate" a whole market for their removal.

As for the approximate cost of the "alkozamok", it currently fluctuates in a fairly wide range from 25 to 120 thousand rubles.

    Yes, a visitor of the restaurant ordered a taxi, but it stalled, because the passenger had the imprudence to overturn a glass of vodka under stellate sturgeon with horseradish ...

    Russian motorists will be obliged to install "alkozamok"

    - Yes ... "alkozamok" - this is a business, of course ... good ... - But today the most terrible thing in cars ... - these are already (already existing) installed in almost every car sound powerful installations ... - Such a car goes by and there is a monstrous roar and hum ... "Bukh-bukh-bukh-bukh-bukh ..." ... - And this happens day and night ... - and the traffic police does not react to this in any way .. - Under such a hum, the driver himself does not hear anything; does not react to anything; you won't go slowly under such a cacophony ... - for many drivers, this hum just blows the tower down (the driver doesn't understand anything); his foot itself squeezes the accelerator pedal to the floor ... - And this almost uncontrollable car rushes at a frantic speed ...: and flies into the oncoming lane, and flies to a stop ... where people are standing; and takes off at the intersection, not having time to respond to traffic lights; and even flies onto the sidewalk where pedestrians are walking ... - and demolishes absolutely everything that comes in his way ... - Sound cacophony acts like a drug ... - Many drivers have it in life ... - in the head only "two convolutions" ... - and from the monstrous roar and hum of sound-noise installations ... - and these "two convolutions" straighten themselves and he rushes ... - seeing and hearing nothing ... and no matter what without reacting ... - until he gets involved in a serious bloody accident (every day this happens on the roads of Russia) ... - I don't mind this inhuman driver; but this scoundrel maims and kills innocent people ... - children, women, old people, etc ...
    - Here it is absolutely incomprehensible to me ... why in Russia no one raises the issue of prohibiting equipping cars with powerful sound systems (a simple 2-watt radio is quite enough) ... - After all, even in the "Rules of the Road", sound signals are prohibited ... - And what is "sound signals" in comparison with the roar and hum of powerful car sound systems ... - it's just ... no comparison ... - But the traffic police do not react to this roar and hum and do not stop such drivers ... - And no one reacts to this roar and roar ... - until ... until a terrible car accident occurs ...

    Must be installed. A very useful device. The Russian must constantly feel the "care" of the ruling clique about him, as much as possible, to siphon more money from his pockets, by any means.

    It won't do anything. Literally this week, I saw how a broken-down boor in a Lexus twice drove through a red light. It is useless to punish such fines, for them it is not money and not a fact that this boor was drunk. They just think that the laws are not written for them. When such thugs begin to deprive them of their driver's licenses for life, and for the fact that they got behind the wheel without a license, they really put them in jail, then the matter will get off the ground and there will be more order on the roads of the Russian Federation.
