“Black boxes” are being secretly installed in newer vehicles. These boxes are recording driver behavior, seat belt usage, and more. A newly proposed law could make these recording devices mandatory for most new vehicles, as the auto industry and big government work hand in hand to provide “driver safety”.
Most people are unaware that newer vehicles already contain these event data recorders, which are a continuous feed of information, recorded by sensors. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 96 percent of 2013 model cars already house these black boxes.
Now the NHTSA is proposing that all automakers install the black boxes by September 2014, as big government plans to keeps its watchful eye on drivers everywhere.
Data recorders supposedly all about driver safety
