A kill-switch breathalyzer was a piece of technology in 2015.

Judging by the name, it can be safely assumed that this was a combination futuristic safety mechanism/anti-drunk flying device, which could automatically shut down the engine, flying systems etc. of a flying car if the pilot was under the influence of alcohol — thus preventing the dangerous act of drunk flying.

According to the Newsline column on the front page of the October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today, Katie Pearson, a new lobbyist hired by the organization Mothers Against Drunk Flying, was to lead a campaign to install kill-switch breathalyzers in flying cars.[1]
