Brilliance: Volvo testing seatbelt breathalyzer

So now, you'll have to grab a sober person and make them blow on your seatbelt before you can drink and drive:

The breathalyzer is part of the seat belt mechanism, and before the car will start, the driver must blow below .08 percent or less with the belt buckled. All 50 U.S. states have adopted .08 as the legal limit, while in Sweden, the legal limit is .02, or the equivalent of one drink.

If I had a sober person willing to blow on my seatbelt, I wouldn't have to go drinking at the bars, now would I?
