Little Cameras Provide Car Safety?

from the seems-like-a-privacy-issue dept

Ford has unveiled some prototypes to help make the roads safer. One of the ideas is to put little cameras in every car that take pictures and will alert rescue crews if something goes wrong. I can certainly see where this could be useful, but there are definitely privacy (“Big Brother”) concerns here. And, as someone who adamantly believes that a car is the place where one should show off their singing talent (or lack thereof), I’m glad to see that a microphone isn’t necessarily part of the plan as well.
