- "Every new car sold in the U.S. may soon be required to include 'black box' data recording devices similar to those used on airplanes."
NY Daily News, January 20, 2012
- "...the new law appears to be a direct attack on the privacy rights of individual citizens."
Washington Examiner, April 19, 2012
- "A bill already passed by the Senate and set to be rubber stamped by the House would make it mandatory for all new cars in the United States to be fitted with black box data recorders from 2015 onwards."

- "They'll be an implicit, omnipresent threat to personal privacy."
The Atlantic, APR 20 2012
I pledge to urge my members of Congress and President Obama to oppose any federal action to mandate the use of black box data recorders in personal vehicles. Whereas mandating black box data recorders;
- Is an infringement on personal privacy and freedoms.
- Would be a slippery slope for Government to track citizen's
transportation habits and location.
- Is both an unnecessary expansion of government police
power and an undue mandate on consumers and business.
"Not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall revise part 563 of title 49, Code of Federal Regulations, to require, beginning with model year 2015, that new passenger motor vehicles sold in the United States be equipped with an event data recorder that meets the requirements under that part."
