The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recently issued a recommendation to require that all new vehicles be equipped with technology that would prevent a person impaired by alcohol from driving.
In a September 20 report, the NTSB recommended that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration take action to require all new vehicles to be equipped with passive vehicle-integrated alcohol impairment detection systems, advanced driver monitoring systems or a combination of the two that would be capable of preventing or limiting vehicle operation if it detects driver impairment by alcohol.
The NTSB recommendation comes as a result of the agency’s investigation into a crash that occurred on January 1, 2021, near Avenal, California. Nine people, including seven children, died in a high-speed head-on collision involving an SUV and a pickup truck. NTSB investigators reported that the SUV driver had a high level of alcohol intoxication and was operating at an excessive speed.
The NTSB also called for new incentives for vehicle manufacturers and consumers to encourage the adoption of technology to prevent speed-related crashes.
“Technology could’ve prevented this heartbreaking crash — just as it can prevent the tens of thousands of fatalities from impaired-driving and speeding-related crashes we see in the U.S. annually,” said NTSB Chair Jennifer Homendy. “We need to implement the technologies we have right here, right now to save lives.”

Four people, including a baby, were kidnapped from their newly opened trucking company office in San francisco earlier this week.
The family – 8-month-old Aroohi Dheri; the child’s mother, Jasleen Kaur, 27; father Jasdeep Singh, 36; and uncle Amandeep Singh, 39 – were kidnapped at gunpoint from a new office for their trucking company. The kidnapping took place on Monday, October 3rd in Merced, California.
According to ABC 10, police were contacted after firefighters found a pickup truck belonging to Amandeep Singh, the uncle, on fire. Officers then visited the uncle’s family at their home, but they were unable to contact the man or couple in the kidnapping. It was then that the family was reported missing.
“They have a trucking company. It’s called Unison Trucking, and they made a new truckyard with an office and they barely started this Monday. Yesterday, when they started working, it was only six days they started business at this place,” said Deep Singh, family member of the kidnapped family.
The suspect was caught on surveillance footage kidnapping the family at gunpoint. Using the footage, officers determined 48-year-old Jesus Salgado was a suspect, but were informed that he had attempted to take his own life on Tuesday before officers could arrive. He was then taken into custody.
Investigators say that the family is still missing, but that the kidnapper has made no demands for ransom of any kind and has not attempted to contact anyone about the kidnapping. He is believed to have destroyed unspecified evidence of the kidnapping in order to throw off law enforcement.
“My husband is very peaceful and calm person. We don’t have any clue why they kidnapped them,” said Jaspreet Caur, wife of the kidnapped uncle. “Please I have six year old and nine year old kid and they are waiting for their dad. Please, please send my family back. Please return my family,” Caur said.
The sheriff’s office said the FBI, the California Department of Justice, and other local law enforcement agencies are all involved in the investigation.
