A great idea!

Fianna Fáil TD John Ellis has called for so-called "alcolocks" to be made mandatory in all cars in Ireland.

The device is a breathalyser fitted to the ignition which motorists must blow into if they want to start their car.

If the driver is above the alcohol limit, the "alcolock" will not allow the vehicle to start.

Mr Ellis, chairman of the Oireachtas Transport Committee, said today that the technology was already being used successfully in some Scandinavian countries.

He said he believed the public would support moves to make such devices obligatory due to growing intolerance of drink-driving in Ireland.

I think this is a great idea. Let's see it introduced over here. It's got my support.
