In this time when they can take your picture walking down the street, monitor your internet usage and visits, and listen in on your phone line...now
comes knowing where you are and where you've been in your car
" The committee passed AB 2800, a bill that would allow insurance
companies to require drivers to install spyware devices in their cars with
no limit on the information - including speed, acceleration, location, time
of day and mileage - the companies could collect. Under the legislation,
consumers who refuse to give up their privacy by allowing the hardware in
their cars would pay higher rates."
While currently this bill is for CA it's only a matter of time for it to be adopted by Insurance companies nationwide.
So my question is this...how many would pay the higher rate for the sake of privacy.
