Re: 'Black Box' Data Recorders Required In All New Cars

said by NetFixer:

"some vehicle models have had recorders since the early 1990s"

How old is the vehicle you currently drive? You may not need to buy a new car to have this technology tattle on you.

True enough, although the amount and nature of the data has grown over time. Earlier models were strictly performance related; now they track driving habits, etc. That's the problem with government monitoring, they start out small, decide they want more, and expand the mandate. Meanwhile no duly-elected representative is given the opportunity to represent.

(It's a 1999. )
