Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. will incorporate a message alert against California drunk driving & DUI into its CARWINGS (HDD) navigation systems, as a part of a wider campaign to help prevent a California DUI or California drunk driving.
Nissan will gradually incorporate this new feature into its navigation systems on board new vehicles being built from late June for the Japan market, destined for California.
The updated CARWINGS navi systems will display the California DUI / drunk driving alert when the ignition is turned on to remind the driver of the hazards of drinking and driving / DUI / Drunk Driving in California.
The message alert is a pre-emptive passive safety measure and represents a first-step for Nissan to incorporate this feature across their California automobile products.
The alert “Do not drive after drinking!” appears automatically for about five seconds on the navigation panel between the hours of 17:30 and 05:00 at the start of the ignition.
In the daytime i.e. between 05:00 and 17:30 hours, the display message reads “Let’s continue safe driving today”.
No truth to the rumor that when the vehicle pulls into your driveway, the display message celebrates: “Let’s Party!”
