Reported today, NHTSA has embarked on its latest tyranny of requiring the installation of monitoring devices in all new automobiles – your unelected regulatory oppressors at work.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is expected to issue new regulations next month, that will require a black box style data recorder be fitted in all new cars.
Similar in concept to the familiar black boxes used in commercial aircraft for decades, the boxes are expected to record information about speed, seat belt use and brake application in the final seconds leading up to an accident, the data can be retrieved for later analysis. – Dvice.com
Now, compliments of Nanny State bureaucracy, Big Brother will be able to retrieve a log of your seat-belt usage for reporting to “the State”, and you can be ticketed ‘after-the-fact’.
I can step out of my Ford F150, mount a Harley Davidson or Ninja Motorcycle, head down the same side-road or Interstate as I can in the Ford F150… …with only a helmet between my body (moving at 75 mph) and the pavement. More irony? In states like Illinois, I can go sans helmet.
Well! This can’t stand. The do-gooders must intervene and protect me from my own self-destructive behavior. Motorcycles must be outlawed!
And, damn-it, there are so may ways that humans can injure themselves, we must outlaw them all:
- Bacon-Covered Hotdogs
- Incandescent Lighting
But, since it’s already illegal to operate a human conveyance device without a seat-belt, outlawing motorcycles is certainly the low-hanging fruit.
Thank you to the automotive and insurance lobby for your assistance on this assault on our 4th Amendment Rights and our freedoms.
