Black box data recorders present potential for invasion of privacy, incomplete picture of accidents

March 28, 2013

Even though, according to NHTSA, the event data recorders, or EDRs, do not collect any personal information, record conversation or run continuously, the Electronic Frontier Foundation stated that accelerator pedal position, brake pedal position, whether the seat belt is connected and other related details can be monitored by the black boxes.

The foundation is concerned that NHTSA does not really outline the amount or limit on the type of data that will be gathered.
