Some time ago I reported that every car has a black box and in that is recorded how fast you have EVER driven, when and where. It is a record of everything. Jim Farley is Ford’s Global VP of Marketing and Sales. He recently told the truth and then tried to retract his words. What he said, which was reported here last year, was that the black box in your car is indeed recording everything and because of the GPS installed in your car, the manufacturer knows when a driver has ever been speeding and where. Car manufacturers can tell if you were speeding in a brand new car when you are supposed to not exceed certain limits for warranty purposes. All of this info is recorded. Police want access claiming they need this info to determine what happened in an accident. There is nothing that is ever private at anytime.
