A secret new program has been quietly approved by the NHTSA that promises to keep all bad drivers off roads and highways. The Motorist IQ program requires motorists to pass a short road test on their smartphones before the car will start.
All motorists must visit a dealer by 2016 to have the equipment that would connect their smartphone to the vehicle's On Board Diagnostics (OBD2) port installed. Motorists who don't comply will be subject to fines up to $100,000 and jailed for a minimum 5 years. NHTSA says fatalities would be reduced by 100% in the first year of the program.
Motorists who don't pass the test would see their vehicle's engine disabled for 2 hours, according to sources. The NHTSA promises that the test and requirements will keep drivers alert to frequently ignored laws, such as stay left except to pass, using your signal to change lanes, and obeying traffic signals.
Bad drivers have long clogged the nation's roads and highways with their poor lane changes and disregard for traffic flow, leading to road rage and severe life-altering car accidents, and according to sources, the government is going to stop bad drivers once and for all.
The NHTSA has realized that GasBuddy members are smart drivers who save and help others find cheap gas and has extended an offer to exempt GasBuddy members from the Motorist IQ program.
Those who are GasBuddy members by May 1, 2014 will be exempt from the new program, so if you haven't signed up today, you better hurry. You may want to share this information with your family and friends and on social networks so they too will be exempt.
