The vast majority of new cars sold in the United States contain a device that continuously monitors the driver’s behavior and vehicle performance. This so-called “black box” or Event Data Recorder (EDR) records at least the last several seconds of vehicle and driver data before a crash, ostensibly for use by crash investigators. In December 2012, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposed rules that would mandate EDRs in all new cars and light trucks. While EDRs can serve a valuable forensic function, the Electronic Frontier Foundation is concerned that the NHTSA’s proposed rules fail to address driver and car-owner privacy in a meaningful way.
