In High School in the early 1980’s I once said ‘Someday our grandchildren will ask ‘you could really drive where you wanted to and nobody would know?’ “

Whenever they draft a piece of legislation with a name like,”Moving Ahead For Progress in the 21st Century Act”, I start getting very suspicious and skeptical

I predict lots of broken sensors, and increased used car resale value.

What about the mandatory breathalyzer in the ignition, GPS for the taxes, and wifi for the police overrides?

OTOH, the Obama administration is working hard to be sure I cannot afford a 2015 vehicle until at least 2022.

This is for accident reconstruction only. The feds will not monitor these things, but will charge you with a felony for disabling them.

I got an eye exam today. I had to look into a the digital lens alignment camera. I asked the person if she was photographing my retinal profile. She said that she was a retired military intelligence worker and that DNA is collected everyday on individuals. According to her, DNA has been saved on surgery patients for five years or so.

My guess is;
Senate Bill 1813 will pass with 51-56 yes votes. Then it will go to the house where it will also pass, probably a little closer. say 250-185. Of course, Obama will sign it. After all it is for the children AND to help bring down the high cost of automobile insurance.
Then the Republicans can say they are being “bipartisan” and really want to “help get America going again”.

A couple of co-sponsored Rs swallowed Boxer's bull:


"Introduced Nov 07, 2011
Reported by Committee Nov 09, 2011
Passed Senate Mar 14, 2012
Passed House (not yet occurred)
Signed by the President (not yet occurred)
This bill or resolution passed in the Senate on March 14, 2012 and goes to the House next for consideration.
Prognosis:

Just 21% of all Senate bills reported favorably by committee in 2009–2010 were enacted."

show cosponsors (3)

Sponsor:
Sen. Barbara Boxer [D-CA]
Status:
Passed Senate"

The reps have probably started and invested in a few after market black box repair and reprogram corps already.

If you have a car built in the last several years, chances are it already has the Event Data Recorder. My 2003 4Runner has one, my wife’s old 2003 Camry had one. And her new 2009 Sienna van has one too.

Many manufacturers have been voluntarily adding them. You can find links to see what makes, models and years have them installed.

What I read about them is that they are tied into the airbag systems. Disable the EVR, and you disable the air bags too. I’m sure someone could find a way around that though.

It isn't a Red Barchetta but yeah, I'm a white-haired uncle and I got a country place and a hot car under a tarp in my garage. I ran it the day before yesterday and it still sounds sweet.

We'll be flipping them off before we have to shoot them, I think. The latter is a dirty little job I don't want to leave for my nephew.

Should this ever come to pass, I’ll bet politicians will be exempt somehow.

Not going to happen. The American people have just about had it with this government.
