Default Black boxes madatory in 2015 cars?

Big brother could be watching how you drive!

If this US bill gets passed,

Quote:
Motorists- beware. A U.S. Senate transportation bill (S. 1813) is currently being negotiated in the U.S. House and Senate, and the Senate recently inserted a provision in the bill that would mandate the use of black boxes in all vehicles starting with the 2015 model year.
Vehicle black box requirement may start with 2015 model year - Gasbuddy Gas Prices

2014 will be the last model year from which I opt to purchase cars if it passes. Either that, or I will remove the black box and stick it in the glovebox. If the cop asks for it I pull it out, hand it to him, and tell him my right to privacy and my right to modify my own car trumps any big brother BS they might try.

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

I wonder if this would apply to motorcycles? Cause that would start a particularly vehement s**tstorm with a lot of bikers...

Looks like I'll never be buying a new car. Or... semi-new car after 2015...
