    information in the posted article:

    MADD paid lobbying firm ML Strategies $40,000 in 2021 to influence Congress on regulations concerning the automotive industry. Christian Fjeld, vice president of ML Strategies and MADD’s lobbyist on the issue, spent nearly a decade working with Democratic leadership on the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, including former senator Bill Nelson (D., Fla.), who is now NASA chief for the Biden administration.

    Intoxalock, a company that manufactures vehicle breathalyzers, has also spent heavily on lobbying in the past five years. It has spent more than $900,000 on lobbyists since 2017, according to the Center For Responsive Politics, including $40,000 to Crossroads Strategies in 2021. The firm boasts many employees who have worked in the federal government, the House of Representatives, and the Senate. Jason Gleason, executive vice president of Crossroads Strategies and one of the firm's numerous lobbyists working with Intoxalock, previously served as chief of staff for Rep. John Sarbanes (D., Md.) from 2009 to 2018. Gleason also served on the staff of former senator Paul Sarbanes (D., Md.) from 2001 until 2007.

    Neither Intoxalock nor the lobbying firms returned requests for comment.

    Then someone that starts selling masks that send exhalations outside, along with an air supply to blow into the deal to start the car will be make some good money. Hmm....
