Was at the dealers and was reading the new owners manuals,Honda has added Event Data Recorders (CRASH) to your cars.An improvement :? ????? depends on who ends up reading the data after the fact. Appears Big Brother is your Copilot now :roll: .

I thought all cars keep track of the last 10 seconds or so of many parameters.

Crash Recorders

No Gm started it over 5 years ago,but insurance company's are using the data obtained to compare with what submitted on the accident report forms.

If a person is worried about big brother, then in my opinion they have something to hide. I believe crash recorders will do more good than harm in the long run.

yeah right

Like MLK had something to hide,right?

Big brother will use whatever means he can to control those he decides are living outside his definition of acceptable "normal behavior".....

And we are not paying our share of gas taxes....ha!

I don't think data recorders are a big deal...just that insurance companies obviously always have your best interests in mind,right?And one of the most powerful($$$$) lobbies in the world...

but other secret surveillance definitely is eroding our freedom...We are being intimidated/bullied by the current batch of liars who think they can circumvent the Bill of Rights/Constitution to serve their own twisted political/religious agendas..and they call it democracy...jmho

Nothing new, USA today says "30 million cars now record drivers behavior"

http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/internetprivacy/2004-12-27-auto-blackbox_x.htm

There was a big case in Quebec (If i remember correctly) where there were 2 cars involved in an accident and the driver of one of the cars died. There were no witnesses to the accident and the driver who survived claimed the driver who died ran a red light, causing the accident.If i recall correctly, the police didn't believe everything in his story added up and once the insurance company paid out on the claim, the police purchased the car from them (or were given permision to investigate it) and through the information in his cars "Black Box" was able to determine he was at fault. He ended up getting convicted.

But this spured a huge privacy debate. Personally i believe the driver should have the option to disable such a device
