A recent event has drawn attention to the EDR, aka the "black box".

 

1)  Can insurance companies use it to deny claims?

2)  Can law enforcement use it to prosecute?

3)  Can an owner remove it, without penalty?

4)  Do rules vary from state to state?

No worries if one is not a criminal.

Informative link, thanks for sending it.

 

After reading the excerpt below, though, I wonder what the law is in the states that have not yet enacted legislation governing EDR's.

 

In December 2015, the federal Driver Privacy Act of 2015 was enacted. It places limitations on data retrieval from EDRs and provides that information collected belongs to the owner or lessee of the vehicle.

I do not consider myself a "criminal", but freely admit to occasionally exceeding speed limits.

I believe most people here, if not all, would fall into a similar category. 😁

 

If you crash, and the black box shows you were going over the speed limit, and the insurance company refuses to pay on the claim, is that an acceptable evolution of this technology?

Negative.

Time management has many benefits not the least of which is stupid low insurance rates. I usually drive 5 under the posted limit, makes it a lot easier to avoid kamikazes.
