Proposal may lead to more accidents, mileage taxes and tickets for “recorded traffic violations”
In a few weeks, federal officials may require new vehicles to have trackable GPS “safety” devices
which could be hacked to cause automobile accidents and may even usher in mileage taxes.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is spending the next couple of weeks mulling over
its decision to install vehicle-to-vehicle communications – known as V2V for short – into new vehicles
which would allow them to “talk” to each other through GPS data under the guise of “accident
prevention,” according to ABC News.
