We have seen technology do some amazing things. Advances have allowed us opportunities that were only figments of our imaginations ten short years ago, but when technology is married to Big Brother we have potential for big problems.
Carmakers are getting ready to introduce new vehicles that will automatically notify the authorities when you surpass speed limits. Talk about an auto-ticket! The technology is called, called “V2X” and according to a report over at The Motley Fool [who are shareholders], discussing the possible revenue boon this would be for cities and towns across the country and how it could be taken advantage of for county coffers,
” … the potential for that kind of abuse is a big challenge for the proponents of V2X technology. If things like that start happening automatically, or if people even think it’s possible, drivers won’t want this technology in their cars. They’ll find some way to disable it, choose cars that don’t have it — or lobby Congress to ditch the whole V2X idea altogether.”
Would you purchase a car with this kind of technology?
