Black Box in Cars

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

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

We will 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.
