At it Again

The Ralph Nader wannabes over at the National Transportation Safety Board are at it again. I thought the idea of a putting "black boxes" in cars had died a well deserved death several years ago, but like all government nonsense, it was merely waiting in the wings for a new opportunity to rise.

The opportunity this time came in the form of a deadly accident in Santa Monica, CA. Since the driver causing the accident chose to exercise his constitutional right to shut the hell up, the Nader lites see a wonderful opportunity to shove the nose of government somewhere it doesn't belong. Many car manufacturers are already placing these nasty little privacy reduction boxes in their vehicles, so why does the government now need to interject?
