    As usual this is a backdoor attempt (disguised as safety) to see how many miles you go each year. Since cars are getting better mpg, gas tax revenues are dropping for both state and feds. This way they can charge per mile for use of roads. Simple solution is to keep your old car. Don't buy one with a black box.

    This is a back door way to make cars ready for the pay per mile tax, where the government will turn every road into a toll road. We already generate plenty of money to maintain the roads with gas taxes but that is not enough the government wants to turn every toad into a toll road as another source of revenue. Not to mention another governmental unwarranted invasion of your privacy. Soon the TSA will have check points strategically located to examine regular cars, just like the big trucks have their check points. The TAS will frisk and grope you and your passengers and download your cell phone and your auto black box to keep an eye on you.

    Just another sign of the ever far reaching tentacles of the Federal Govt. Under the disguise of safety the Feds will stop at nothing until they have complete control of ones life except when it comes to dying with dignity.

    It takes away your right to 'keep silent as to not hang yourself'. It's a really slippery slope, they do not take road conditions into consideration because they can't. In MA even when the data contradicts the reconstruction prosecution is still allowed to use this data to send folks to jail.
    If you are able, after any incident erase the collected data by turning the ignition ON/OFF 3-4 times.
    I know this because I was convicted in 2005 of negligent homicide. An accident occurred while driving down a pot hole filled road @ 20 MPH in a blinding snowstorm at 230 in the afternoon. Speeding, no way. More like trying to power out of a spin in a foot of snow. Never had a driving infraction I 18 years. BIG BROTHER IS A BAD IDEA!!
