Via Nate - Privacy Experts Shun Black Boxes:
According to Joe Osterman, director of highway safety at the NTSB, the recommendation was inspired in part by a tragic auto accident involving a 86-year-old man who drove his car into a crowded Santa Monica farmers.

Osterman said a black box in the car might have not saved the people in the crash, but would have allowed investigators to find out how it happened and how cars could be better designed to reduce the likelihood of greater injury in the future.
They don't need a stinkin' black box to tell you how to solve that particular incident. Don't let old people with bad eyesight drive. Every time I got in the car with my nana in her later years, I would just panic.

"Nana, the light is red. Stop the car. Nana! STOP THE CAR! You are going to hit them!" It is a blessing she never hit anyone.

It is a government conspiracy. Big Brother is extending his reach EVERYWHERE!
