Big Brother Alert: NHTSA Wants to Track Your Car’s Position and Speed in the Near Future

with one comment

(CNSNews.com) – Before the end of this year, the National Highway Traffic Safety  Administration will decide whether or not to begin the rulemaking  process to mandate that newly manufactured cars include what is being  called “vehicle-to-vehicle” (V2V) communications technology that  constantly broadcasts via radio wave the car’s location, direction,  speed and, possibly, even the number of passengers it is carrying. “NHTSA expects to make a decision on V2V technology by the end of the year,” a spokesman for the agency told CNSNews.com. That point was reaffirmed by NHTSA Administrator David Strickland in  testimony in the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee today, where he said the agency will “decide this year whether to  further advance the technology through regulatory action, additional  research, or a combination of both.”

The downside is that such a transportation system would give the government at least the capability to exert increasing control over when, where, if–or for how much additional taxation–people are allowed to go places in individually owned vehicles. It could also give government the ability to track where people go and when. – See more at: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/nhtsa-may-mandate-new-cars-broadcast-location-direction-and-speed#sthash.caBzwh52.dpuf
