NYTimes Analysis Highlights Data Being Sent from Contemporary Cars to Auto Manufacturers

A New York Times analysis claims that “for all the things we’re getting out of our connected vehicles, carmakers are getting much, much more: They’re constantly collecting data from our vehicles.” Contemporary cars feature “telematics, in the form of an always-on wireless transmitter that constantly sends vehicle performance and maintenance data to the manufacturer.” According to the Times, McKinsey approximates that such cars compile “as much as 25 gigabytes of data per hour.” Aside from being aware of “how much we weigh,” they also “track how much weight we gain,” and are aware of “how fast we drive, where we live, how many children we have – even financial information.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

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...)
