Moderator's introduction

The government wants all new cars to have black boxes to record driving data by next September. Today’s columns look at the privacy concerns dogging that requirement; what the current rules address and omit; the potential negatives of sharing information; and some of the obvious benefits. We hear from two lawyers versed in the pros and cons of Event Data Recorders and an elected official who owns car dealerships.
