Well, if I buy and own the vehicle then I also own it's contents so I can remove and "play" with that black box in anyway I so desire. How the heck it ended up traveling over 600mph to Shanghai 4 years ago and ended up as someone's teapot stand would lead to an interesting "investigation". If they decide to mandate a law then it might be time to consider starting a business restoring classic vehicles.

I believe that's what most of us would do.
I have a few of those oldies around the place myself.
The only thing I could see happening is the parts becoming very expensive or hard to find.

All in the name of safety. Sadly the general public would buy into that propaganda. And we are slowing turning into England. ..a police country with false freedom. Ok off my soap box now.

Surprise, they are already in most cars. They only record a short period at a time, less that 30 seconds. I personaly havent accessed the data but I work with people who have. I believe a search warrant is needed to view the data. It doesnt send out data wirelessly and must be downloaded by computer to see what is inside. It is used in traffic collision to show speed, seat belt use, lights on/off and other information.

They have had these for years:

http://www.npr.org/blogs/alltechcons...the-off-switch

I remember reading BWM denying people warranty work due to data on the box like over revving the engine before it was warmed up (mine has a series of lights on the tach that give you a limit on the rpms based on temperature of the engine.

Progressive has a "snap shot" device that I believe reads this data as well to determine if you get a good driver discount.

like one said on the article... I wouldn't mind if it were treated like aircraft black boxes... only accessed AFTER a crash AND only logged say last hour of data, or even last 30 minutes prior to crash.
