+ - Driver Privacy Act Introduced in US Senate->

Submitted by greatgreygreengreasy
greatgreygreengreasy (706454) writes "In 2005, then North Dakota Republican Governor John Hoeven signed into law a bill "ensuring drivers' ownership of their EDR (Electronic Data Recorder) data." Now as US Senator, he has teamed up with Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, to introduce similar legislation at the Federal level. "Under this legislation, EDR data could only be retrieved [for specific reasons]." The EFF has expressed concern in the past over the so-called black boxes, and their privacy implications. This legislation, however, would not address the recent revelations by a Ford executive on their access to data, since in those cases "The vehicle owner or lessee consents to the data retrieval." The bill has gained the support of about 20 Senators so far."
