New "Black Boxes" in 2014??

Wasn't sure where else to put this, so figured this was as good a place as any...saw on the news last night that starting in 2014 all new vehicles sold will have to be equipped with a "black box" (think airplane crash investigation here) so that "they" (not sure who "they" are but guessing everyone but the owner) will be able to see what was going on 3-5 seconds before a crash. As you can imagine, the privacy advocates are all over this already. Seems like just another way for other agencies to keep tabs on what we do with our rigs....

Just food for thought.

That's what I thought when I heard this report on the news, and what a lot of other groups were saying. So i'm guessing it is just another way for someone other than the owner to point a finger when something happens I guess. I question is who will "own" the data that is on the thing and will say an insurance agent or the police be able to access it without owner approval. I'm sure there will be plenty of heated discussions to follow.

Happy Sunday!

Event Data Recording
Other modules in your vehicle event data recorders are capable of
collecting and storing data during a crash or near crash event. The
recorded information may assist in the investigation of such an event.
The modules may record information about both the vehicle and the
occupants, potentially including information such as:

how various systems in your vehicle were operating;

whether or not the driver and passenger seatbelts were buckled;

how far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or the
brake pedal;

how fast the vehicle was traveling; and

where the driver was positioning the steering wheel.

To access this information, special equipment must be directly connected
to the recording modules. Ford Motor Company, Ford of Canada and
Ford Motor Company, S.A. de C.V. do not access event data recorder
information without obtaining consent, unless pursuant to court order or
where required by law enforcement, other government authorities or
other third parties acting with lawful authority. Other parties may seek to
access the information independently of Ford Motor Company, Ford of
Canada and Ford Motor Company, S.A. de C.V.

I have a feeling the data recorders are in place to not only help determine what happened in a fatal accident, but to also protect car manufacturers from people making false claims that the car did not function properly and was the cause of the accident (Toyota just dealt with this not so long ago with people claiming the cars were accelerating automatically out of control).

Yep. Believe me. The world is not out to get you. I don't see why everyone panics when stuff like this comes out.

Do you have a cell phone? How about a computer? Guess what...

I'm not saying any of this to be rude. It's just how things work now.


It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.
