Event Data Recorders will be mandatory in all cars by 2015
Black boxes are already installed in over 90-percent of vehicles and track data like speed, braking, airbag deployment and some even know the vehicle's location. I did not know that something like this was even present in my car when I purchased it. I did not know that this so called black box even existed in vehicles untill today . Today I had read that the Senate Commerce Committee has granted bipartisan approval to legislation that aims to protect the information on automotive Event Data Recorders (EDR), also known as black boxes. The committee concluded that the vehicle owner is the one who owns the information stored on the device.
The information can still be accessed if authorized by a court or if the owner consents. Had I would of known about this "EDR" that came with the vehicle when I bought it, I would have requested it not to be installed. But the option was never made available to me. The fact that a device like this was installed onto vehicles without the publics knowledge was wrong ! It was then, and still is an invasion of privacy to all of us. ! Now, can I ask if there is someone has any knowledge of how to uninstall or disable this device "EVENT DATA RECORDER" (EDR) , will you please let us know. ?
