Black Box in Cars

The obvious safety benefits of black boxes in cars should culiminate in a decision by the feds by the end of the year make mandatory black box data recorder in new cars.

Long term, this is going to decrease business for car accident lawyers because universal black boxes are going to give manufacturers and safety experts a ton on information to breakdown how accidents really happen and what can be done to make safety modifcations to prevent serious accidents.

We are going to hear a lot of libertarian “big brother is watching me” junk but, ultimately, we can use these black boxes however we agree as a society they can and should be used. Clearly, using black boxes to figure out how to avoid accidents is a good thing.
