Car Hacking To Be Made Illegal

CNET News reports in continuing coverage that the House Energy and Commerce Committee is pushing the NHTSA to “spearhead a series of reforms changing how the government deals with recalls, hackers and data collection, as well as compliance with current and future fuel-economy regulations.” The committee’s draft proposal “would make it illegal to hack a vehicle, with civil penalties up to $100,000 for such an offense,” the article reports. Meanwhile, “an NHTSA-created cybersecurity advisory council comprising both federal regulators and automaker representatives would develop a best-practices method to address current and future concerns, including how to deal with vehicle data collection,” the article adds. In addition, NHTSA data shows that some 25 percent of vehicles recalled do not end up getting fixed.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
