The Biden administration’s $1.8 trillion Build Back Better bill died on the floor of the Senate after Sen. Joe Manchin voiced his opposition to nearly everything in it.
Meanwhile, Democrats slipped controversial legislation into Pres. Joe Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that was signed into law last year.
The new law requires car and truck manufacturers to install the kill switch in every new vehicle sold in this country.
But critics complain that the remote kill switch will negatively impact drivers around the country.
Democrats insist their kill switch is a life-saving measure. However, critics say the device will make it easier for government agencies to stop your car in its tracks.
Banks will also have an easier time repossessing your vehicle if you fall behind on your car note.
According to the bill, the kill switch, which was signed into law by Biden in November, must “passively monitor the performance of a driver of a motor vehicle to accurately identify whether that driver may be impaired.”
If the driver is impaired, the vehicle will automatically shut off in the middle of the road or highway. Don’t bother trying to restart it.
Critics also say the bill features a “backdoor” allowing government agencies to hijack your car.
Hackers can also access the backdoor and remotely control your car with you inside it.
