NHTSA Considers Mandating Black Boxes For All US Vehicles | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

Posted by: Salvatore J. Zambri, founding partner 


USA Today reports that the NHTSA may require “Black boxes” in all US automobiles.  The story notes how black boxes in cars help experts reconstruct accidents to determine the causes of the causes of crashes.   This development was, according to the report, “[p]rompted by Toyota’s recalls and questions about whether they fully remedy possible runaways.”

I am a big fan of this kind of positive change.  Why not have black boxes in cars.  Anything that fosters safety while diagnosing defects and recklessness is a good thing. Let’s hope the NHTSA follows through on this initiative.

I’ll keep you posted.  In the meantime, drive safely.
