If it triggers a bolt gun to the groin of some jackass rubbernecking on the DC beltway, I'm all for it.

The only thing that worries me about this is that it records the driver's body temperature every 10 minutes. Rectally.

So much this. Stop worrying about your black box, and start worrying about the data leaking out of your smartphone, which contains all the info you're paranoid about, except that instead of you legally owning the data, Apple, Google or the app manufacturer owns it.

Not only that, but people WANT to be tracked! What do you people think you're doing when you're constantly updating social media, or using store points cards? "Hey guys, come track me! Please? Here, let me pay you to know what I'm doing!"

Call me paranoid but I refuse to use my debit cards or credit cards whenever I purchase alcohol, ammo and other such things. I always take out cash instead. I really have no justification or reasoning behind it. I am not on any sort of lists I just don't like those purchases being tracked to me.

You are in need of professional help because you are acting on paranoid delusions that you admit have no basis in reality.

Marcus Aurelius: Most of these black boxes are located under the front passenger seat. Once you know where it is, it is fairly easy to disable or dispose of.

Oops! The cable came out. How did that happen?

And you committed a crime similar to operating a motor vehicle without insurance. How did that happen.

Weaver95: "By understanding how drivers respond in a crash and whether key safety systems operate properly, NHTSA and automakers can make our vehicles and our roadways even safer," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. "This proposal will give us the critical insight and information we need to save more lives."

the legislature is gonna think this is totally awesome...right up until one of them gets caught driving drunk and their black box recorder verifies they wiped out a bunch of nuns by driving stupidly. THEN we'll see 'privacy concerns' get written into the laws again.

Driving exhausted, Weaver. EXHAUSTED.

Rich people don't get drunk. They get exhausted.
