Mandatory ‘Big Brother’ Black Boxes In All New Cars From 2015

Paul Joseph Watson

A bill already passed by the Senate and set to be rubber stamped by the House would make it mandatory for all new cars in the United States to be fitted with black box data recorders from 2015 onwards.
Section 31406 of Senate Bill 1813 (known as MAP-21), calls for “Mandatory Event Data Recorders” to be installed in all new automobiles and legislates for civil penalties to be imposed against individuals for failing to do so.
“Not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall revise part 563 of title 49, Code of Federal Regulations, to require, beginning with model year 2015, that new passenger motor vehicles sold in the United States be equipped with an event data recorder that meets the requirements under that part,” states the bill.
Although the text of legislation states that such data would remain the property of the owner of the vehicle, the government would have the power to access it in a number of circumstances, including by court order, if the owner consents to make it available, and pursuant to an investigation or inspection conducted by the Secretary of Transportation.
Given the innumerable examples of both government and industry illegally using supposedly privacy-protected information to spy on individuals, this represents the slippery slope to total Big Brother surveillance of every American’s transport habits and location data.

Thanks to Swamprat for the link.

And I've got a buddy that's done some very "interesting" things to today's Big Brother technology, so I figure it'll take him about 2 hours to either completely disable it, turn off the recording, or make it record bogus data. Hurray for useful friends!

There's gotta be a way to disable it or jam it. Of course doing that would probably constitute some federal offense. And on the other hand, it would be a violation of our constitutional right to privacy to make those mandatory. Either way, we're screwed. I'm glad I don't have much longer to go anyway. At this rate, I'd have to agree with Ted. I'll die for my country if that bitch and his wife mooch get re elected.

I read where the U.S. carmakers have been putting these in trucks five years ago.
And they are connected to the air bag.
Insurance companies anyone?
