Thumb Great ideas

I think this is a great idea, why not have someone be able to track your daily driving. Knows how hard you accelerate, brake, corner etc... So when you get in an accident they can use the info to help you out, no officer I was not speeding see look at the black box. Of course your insurance will go down because everyone is a safe driver and never speeds. I think is is one of the better ideas the insurance companies have come up with, almost as good as paying for insurance just in case something happens. I will be installing this black box in all my vehicles as soon as I am dead and gone, fawk them the greedy bastards.
My house insurance went up by 320 this year because they had to make a lot of payouts this year, soooo that's what we pay you for. It is a gamble/bet we make with them, but they always win. They can install this up their ass then have some fawk them there while video taping it, then up load it to you tube and see how it feels. Then just then they might know how it feels for the world to be watching what you are doing, then maybe then I will not think about it.
Now let's just hope no one from my insurance company is reading this lol
So nope won't install it

could you imagine the guys in the states who use their daily rides to run in local races down there.. or us who would roll a stop sign in the middle of no where? we are just f--ked if this goes in and sticks to us,, then mandatory if you want insurance......
Simple for me. I don't own a vehicle new enough to have an OBD2 port to plug into.
:)
Agree it will become compulsory soon enough

We have the same kind of "Black Box" on out Ambulances and our Support Vehicles. It's not always about micromanaging - sometimes it saves your ass.

Mounties were at the Station today after a complaint of "Speeding" and "Brake Checking". Super pulled the data and cleared the Medic.

I am mixed up, almost all newer cars have at least 2 black boxes install from the factory, Airbag controller and Anti-lock brake controllers record data.
Back in 1999 I remember a cop car coming in, brake light on dash on warranty.
I downloaded the data , it told me the vehicle was doing 102 mph when all 4 wheels left the ground at 12.01 am the night before. I reset, it was fine,
asked the officer about data he told me there was a high speed chase resulting in being airborne after crossing the railroad tracks around midnight.
I explained the brake controller sensed it had no brakes being airborne and set code warning of no brakes during times when wheels are not on the ground.

There not talking about it in BC yet but when they do I'd probably sell the Multistrada and find a old R60/6.

All I can think about is those scenes in "The Fifth Element" where Bruce Willis's character had to rip that black box out of his cab in order to get it running......

Man...if that is in our future....I think I'll walk.

NO.
I do not want anyone to track my personal data. and only do so when forced by law. Census sucks.
I live quite well without a Air-Miles or Optimum card or any other data collection device designed for the good of the company. No cell phone to track my whereabouts and deal most of the time in cash.
I am not paranoid about people following me but if a corp wants my personal info so they can increase the bottom line they can pay me in money.
Insurance companies look after themselves and only themselves. They are not looking to take care of me or save me money.

Hell NO!!!!!

One of the things this device monitors is the time of day you drive, like apparently driving between 11pm and 3am are the most dangerous times and you must be punished, because if you drive during that time you must have just left a bar. Unfortunately for me, I do shift work which means coming or going around midnight, so I would be f%&ked by big brother. Driving an home on an empty backroad at midnight is somehow more dangerous than driving the 401 at rush hour.
Currently they ask how far you drive the vehicle to work, okay fine, but with the new device they can also monitor how much you drive for pleasure, bastards.

I know that these devices will eventually become mandatory, especially in Ontario, because we asked our government to demand cheaper insurance rates right? So this will be their excuse, it will be giving us what we wanted.
