It is virtually impossible to buy a car these days without it containing at least one computer system. Cars are now being equipped with black boxes which monitor your driving, such as brake application, steering, etc. Information which is collected by the card could be used in the court of law, and essentially your car could be used to ‘testify against you’.
I know that they have been installing black boxes inside firetrucks, and they log everything that happens when the truck is turned on, such as its speed, applying brakes, and whether or not everyone’s seat belts are buckled while its in motion but I didn’t think they would start to put them into personal vehicles.
I think that its interesting that they are implementing black boxes into cars. It is scary to think about the amount of information that could be collected about an individual regarding where they drove, how fast they were driving, and how it could be used. Other than using it for motor vehicle accidents, the information could potentially be used many other types of crimes as well.
