Believe it or else, there were opponents to air bags, seat belts and child safety restraints.
Some time, someone will oppose everything… even vanilla ice cream and Mother’s Day.
There are, I suppose, several ways to consider the following.
One could presume the psychotic Chicken Little, paranoid delusional “the-sky-is-falling” approach, or, one could suppose the device is only an extension of someone who cannot tell a lie… or, at least is very difficult to deliberately fabricate falsehood.
And then, there’s something in the middle.
I would imagine that’s where the truth resides.

The Senate passed a bill in March that calls for “mandatory event data recorders” (or black boxes) to be installed in all new passenger motor vehicles, starting with the 2015 models, and which would record data before, during or after a crash, according to KurzweilAI.net.
The bill, which can be seen here, has a privacy provision but gives the government the authority to access the black box in a number of circumstances, including court order, consent of the owner, an investigation or inspection, or to determine the need for emergency responses.
