Focusing public attention on emerging privacy and civil liberties issues

Department of Transportation Seeks Public Comment on Connected Cars

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, at the Department of Transportation, is soliciting public comments on the privacy and security implications of connected "vehicle-to-vehicle" technology. According to the agency, the technology transmits data between vehicles to "facilitate warnings to drivers concerning impending crashes." The agency plans to mandate vehicle-to-vehicle technology. NHTSA is also soliciting comments on a connected car research report. Comments on both are due October 20, 2014. Last year EPIC, joined by a coalition of privacy and consumer rights organizations and members of the public, urged NHTSA to protect driver privacy and establish privacy safeguards for car "black boxes." For more information, see EPIC: Event Data Recorders and EPIC: Comments on the Privacy and Security Implications of the Internet of Things.
