From tomorrow, all new vehicles sold in the EU will have mandatory black boxes fitted that record technical data and will be accessible by authorities, greasing the skids for surveillance-powered speed limiting technology.

While for the time being, drivers can opt-out of using the feature, privacy advocates fear the technology will become mandatory once it is properly rolled out.

Back in 2019, the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) announced that July 6 would mark the day when all car manufacturers would be forced to fit new models with a system that keeps track of technical data.

The data recorded will include “the vehicle’s speed, braking, steering wheel angle, its incline on the road, and whether the vehicle’s various safety systems were in operation, starting with seatbelts.”

A bike with a 48 volt, 1000W electric system is quite a nice little vehicle.

Great, so now you’ll just get a ticket online and via email. Liberal world order.

And just like that an entire industry will be built around disabling this big brother bullshit. People are going to make a lot of money off of people like me who refuse and reject this kind of personal monitoring.

A horsepower is quite useful and powerful. People underestimate how functional such a machine is. It can transport two people, tow a considerable trailer, bring home all the groceries. It can go over 40 kph. For commuting, for fun, for practical use it could fill a very large need people have.
