Volvo cars to slow or stop drunk or dangerous drivers

Volvo cars to slow or stop drunk or dangerous drivers

Volvo Cars is planning to fit its next generation of autos with cameras and sensors that will detect drunken or distracted drivers and intervene to stop dangerous rides.

From the early 2020s, Volvos will have the ability to notice if a driver is clearly intoxicated or erratic and allow the car to intervene if the person behind the wheel doesn’t heed warning signals. The auto could then limit the speed, alert an assistance service or, “as a final course of action,” slow down and park, Volvo said.

The initiative follows an earlier announcement from Volvo that the company will introduce a 112-mph speed limit on all models from 2020. Chief Executive Officer Hakan Samuelsson hopes that the measures will save lives and make car insurance less pricey for Volvo buyers. The company is also hoping that insurance companies will be able to offer more favorable insurance policies to Volvo owners who use its safety features.
