Event Data Recorders in Cars


This committee will study the need for and feasibility of uniform or model state legislation concerning event data recorders in cars. Event data recorders in cars, also known as “EDRs,” “black boxes,” and “sensing and diagnostic modules,” record information, such as vehicle speed, occupants’ seat belt use, vehicle location, and brake usage. The committee will consider the issues raised by the installation of EDRs, including privacy issues, disclosure requirements, ownership of data, use of EDR data as evidence, access to and data retrieval for use by law enforcement or others; use required by or retrieved by insurers; and use of EDR data as evidence in legal proceedings.
