By Meaghan Ziemba – What is contemporary privacy? With most people freely exposing their ‘private’ lives via Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Instagram, and all the other available apps out there, is one tiny black box, meant for determining the cause of an accident, really that invasive? People are already supporting similar practices by installing snapshot from Progressive Car Insurance.
If drivers are following the laws of the road, and driving carefully, the information fed into the data recorder doesn’t even get looked at. However, if an individual does get into a wreck, the information that the little black box contains actually might help someone’s case instead of hindering them. After all, if it proved your innocence, would you play the ‘invasion of privacy’ card then? Probably not.
