According to recent reports, Nissan is developing an ignition interlock that would deter intoxicated individuals from starting their cars and possibly causing great bodily harm to themselves or innocent bystanders should they drive drunk. Several recent high-profile, alcohol-related accidents and fatalities in Japan have brought this issue to the forefront, and Nissan appears to be one of the first Japanese automakers to address the issue.
It's always tragic when people die from automotive accidents, especially when they've barely started their lives. Last month, four teen from Wakefield High School in Raleigh, North Carolina, were killed when the driver's Mazda RX-8 slammed into a concrete barrier. In response, the high school, the Wakefield Forest police department, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) have gathered together to put on a safe-driving fair this weekend.
