C'MON...DIVE RIGHT IN....
Most people are unaware that many automobiles have an EDR..no that isn't an erectile dysfunction reliever it is an:
event data recorder
(a little black box) under the front seat.
This device records the last 20 seconds of your vehicles speed/braking/acceleration data before an impact.
This information has helped to convict
dishonest people by providing solid evidence of the event.
The American Civil Liberties Union is worried that this information will advance to Orwellian proportions and become a surveillance monster. What if illegal and dangerous driving habits could be monitored without your permission...
Oh (BIG) Brother?
For instance, you could get ticketed for traffic violations by checking your EDR or via satellite monitoring..imagine getting ticketed without your criminal activity being witnessed..HUH..
can something be wrong
even if nobody else sees you doing it ?
The basic catch 22 of our legal system is the idea that people are deemed innocent until proven guilty which was designed to protect the accused,
not the victim.
In Arizona, a Roman Catholic Bishop was convicted in a hit and run trial thanks to the little black box (surrogate conscience) in his car.
He almost got away with it but the crash data retrieval system proved that he had hit the brakes ... therefore he had seen the victim....
and then he took off!
Thank goodness that we baaaaad little sheep had that little blaa blaa blaack box to watch over our 'ethically challenged' shepherd.
Sheesh, what is this world coming to if you can't rely on a Bishop to confess to driving over a pedestrian?
