When new cars have new requirements old cars do not need them. There are many old cars without airbags or many, many other safety items. It can take
decades to penetrate the marketplace and even then, there is never a 100% coverage.
This in itself puts a dampener on any nefarious plans. It could be simply someones good idea to prevent deaths and have responders get to a scene
very quickly. Could also stop car thieves if it activates along with the alarm system.
As I have said, nefarious use would soon be identifies and the hue and cry would be amazing. Governments could fall over it. Governments do not
enjoy falling from the public's grace.
The thing is in the body of a car, it needs an aerial clear of the cars body and aerials are very easy to disable.
I don't see a big problem here, it could in fact be a huge win for us in the long run, the final straw that brakes the back of Government interfering
in our daily lives. This sort of thing could well be that one straw if it is ever used for ID tracking or if they try to use it for issuing speeding
fines. The public would not stand for it.
The pressure against tracking is gaining ground almost daily as it is.
I would welcome such a straw. I would like to see this camel's back torn asunder.
