A Canadian lawyer is pushing for carsharing companies to add breathalyzers to their cars, following a crash in Vancouver involving a Car2Go vehicle that killed a taxi driver.
According to News 1130, lawyer Kyla Lee of Acumen Law Corporation is arguing that the cost of installation would be covered because the vehicles are used so often, and that you can't put a price on someone's life.
If installed, drivers would need to blow into the device in order to start the car. If alcohol is detected over the legal limit, the vehicle won't start.
Lee says that carsharing companies need to do more to make sure is customers and others on the roads are safe.
