yes, it HAS been used in accident situations. i read where one person was convicted of wreckless homicide. she was found guilty of speeding when she hit another car, killing a passenger in the other car. the court used the 'info' from the defendants own car to convict her. i think she was going 77 in a 65 mph zone. not really sure that at those speeds, it really would have made a difference if she had been going 65, but apparently the prosecutor and jury thought so.

so, beware....your car is not like your spouse, it CAN testify against you!!! :eek:
And this is a bad thing? If you aren't being reckless, why worry?

The data stream that is recorded is only a few moment long anyway, with the aim of capturing activity just prior to a catastrophic event, such as airbag deployment or sudden stop due to impact. No different than an eyewitness or a red-light camera at an intersection.

On the brighter side -- how long do you think it will take some enterprising individual/company to come up with a set of blinders for these things? Doesn't take long for them to reprogram ECU's, why would it take any longer to close the black box's eyes?
