just start wearing a balaclava and sun glasses anytime you drive, so that your whole face is covered. Good luck proving who that is then, could be osama himself

No, not at all I agree with most of your posts, I was talking about littlewiener and his adolescent fantasy's.

Different situation. Someone with a DUI has already goie through the criminal process and had the device installed. AND if they tried to drive under the influence then they woul be committing another crime.



With something that required EVERYone to swipe a license prior to starting a car, the situation is different. We aren't then dealing with people who have gone though the court process and agreed to abide by different rules to regain their ability to drive.

So how does your logic apply to folks that go into a bar and get carded? They haven't done anything wrong and are not going through the court process?



All that needs to happen if for congress to pass law, and you'll get "carded" each time you turn your key.

The author assumes that the technology will be used in the worst possible manner. But that is just one possible scenario.



I have also heard that you could use this same technology to get a huge discount on your insurance. A driver/rider could voluntarily install a box to record their speed. Then they could submit the data over the Internet each month. Their insurer would give them a rebate for good driving.



Another use good use of the technology would be for teen drivers. You could install a box on your son's car, and maybe save his life.



The real truth is that we should stay politically aware, and work against the users described in the article. It is not intrinsically bad technology.

Speeding is fun, and helps me to remain focused and alert on the boring highway stretches. Maybe not 160mph, but 80 or 90!

Yeah, and you can use a gun for varmint control or people control. The problem lies in the fact than any such dual use technology will likely be used for the wrong purposes by our government. You don't have to look very hard to find numerous examples of government lawlessness when the technology is available to them.
