Black boxes – EU wants one in every car

November 1st, 2009

EU to police drivers with black boxes (The Times, 1 November 2009)

THE European Union is drawing up plans for aircraft-style black box recorders to be fitted to all cars to help the police identify who is responsible for crashes. A £2.4m, three-year study commissioned by the European commission’s transport arm has recommended the mandatory installation of the boxes in all cars.

Don’t bet your car on this! It’s wrong – there are no such proposals. The study quoted is a piece of researchand the opinions in it represent the views of the consultants who carried it out.
