The Ministry of industry, found “Kommersant”, until the end of the year plans to develop a “concept of the introduction of mass consumption” alcolocks (block ignition in the detection of alcohol in the breath) and “prostimulirujte” automakers to install devices in cars rolling off the Assembly line. Previously, the installation of devices supported by the traffic police, moreover, 2022, all vehicles produced in the EU must be equipped with locks. Experts point out that the initiative will inevitably lead to an increase in the cost of cars, since the prices of alcolocks range from 25 to 120 thousand rubles. besides, warn opponents, the probability of erroneous operation of the system of locks.“B” acquainted with the Protocol of the meeting in the Ministry on the issues of fitting vehicles with alcolocks devices lock the ignition. Prior to 1 October will see the concept of “introduction into the mass consumption of alcolocks to the vehicles, including the provision of service vehicles with alcolocks”. Until December 31, will “study the issue” “on the promotion of mass implementation of alcolocks in the production model”. Automakers will get extra points (under current system for assessing the localization of production) for the installation of alcolocks manufactured in Russia. FGUP US check the effect of devices on the safety of vehicles: shall be, specifically excluded a situation when ignition interlock device disables the engine on the go. Prepared standards containing requirements and methods of tests of alcolocks, the rules of their installation. In the future, the device will receive the status of “means of measurement” (similar to the breathalyzers and speed cameras), which means carrying out regular verification of the instrument. The Ministry of industry and trade on request “b” did not answer.Alcolocks (alcohol interlock) started to apply in Sweden in the late 1990-ies. Today devices are used in many countries to control people previously caught drink driving, or to control the drivers transporting passengers. In Australia, the delinquent owners put them at their own expense and are required to conduct a monthly verification — it costs about $2.2 million a year. In Lithuania from 1 January 2020 to reduce the period of deprivation of rights, agreeing to the installation of the alcolocks. 2022 all new vehicles produced in the territory of the European Union, must be equipped with alcolocks.In Russia the idea has been discussed for years. In 2010, similar devices were placed on school buses in Tatarstan Republic and the Ivanovo region, but further pilot project is not gone. The traffic police supported the installation of the devices. In 2013, “Fair Russia” has proposed to require drivers convicted of drinking and driving, to put at own expense the alcolocks, but Zukonoproject rejected. Similar amendments several times announced the Moscow city Duma, but adopted they were not. In 2015 to put the alcolocks was suggested by the Minister for open government Mikhail Abyzov.At a meeting in the Ministry of industry and trade, the Protocol was attended by representatives of OOO “research and production firm “Meta”” (manufacturer of equipment for THE breathalyzer), the Scientific and production enterprise ITELMA (supplier of spare parts for factories), omega, OOO (developer of information systems), JSC “niim “Progress”” (manufacturer of microelectronics). Ready ignition interlock device cost 79 thousand RUB is only at the “Meta”. On request “b” the company has not responded. The price of alcolocks manufacturers range from 25 to 120 thousand rubles To AVTOVAZ, UAZ, GAZ, Hyundai not comment on the situation. “The use of the breathalyzer generates a greater probability of error,— says the source “b” in the market.— If we test once at the time of landing, then breathe on the device can anyone, not necessarily the driver. If we monitor the presence of vapors during movement, the presence in the interior of one or more passengers with signs of alcoholic intoxication may lead to erroneous activation of the system lock”.In the instructions to the device of the “Meta” says that the use of a liquid for oral cavity, perfume or aftershave “before the test”, non-Smoking 2 minutes before the test, and the presence of vapors of the washer inside the machine can affect the results. Before the test is also prohibited to consume food, drink cold or hot water. If alcolock found excess levels of alcohol, the next attempt will be to commit only half an hour.In theory, you can put the alcolocks to the vehicles of drivers convicted of drunken driving, said the first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on state construction Vyacheslav Lysakov, but to talk about the mass use of these devices before: “No regulatory framework, no standards or infrastructure for maintenance of alcolocks”. Needs to communicate with alcolocks with the police to attempt to get behind the wheel drunk was considered an “aggravating circumstance”, said Mr Lysakov. “So far, it looks like drones and flying taxi. Someday we will come to it, but so far ahead of ourselves, he says. If alcolocks will be set by automakers, it will lead to higher prices for cars. Why a driver who does not drink should pay for the ignition interlock device?””Automakers and their dealers are not likely to support the idea,— says the Director of the SFI “road Safety” Tatarstan (in years 1997-2016, Chairman of the Republican STSI), Rifkat Minnikhanov.— Given the large share of the secondary market and the mentality of the owners of prestigious cars, IDAI’m unlikely to be viable. Yes, the idea that there are no locks, which our countrymen will not pick up the “keys” to deny it has never failed.”Ivan Buranov
