Te Heuheu Posted September 30, 2013 Share Posted September 30, 2013 Dear Mr....... Thank you for contacting me to express your thoughts about recording devices in motorcycles. I appreciate hearing from you and I understand American motorcyclists enjoy the culture of freedom and independence that biking represents. As you may know, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will require event data recorders, also known as black boxes, to be installed in all vehicles made after 2014 in support of traffic safety programs. I recognize your concerns that an event data recorder may invade on your right to privacy and that this data may be used to increase your vehicle insurance rates. As you may know, Congressman Michael Capuano introduced a bill, the Black Box Privacy Protection Act, to require vehicle manufacturers to disclose the presence of black boxes in new vehicles and allow vehicle owners control over the black box and its data. We must be sure to balance safety needs and a rider's right to privacy. Please know that I will keep your thoughts in mind should this bill come before me for a vote. I remain optimistic that we can make Congress work for the American people and find common ground to move our country forward. Democracy works best when we stay in touch, so please visit bera.house.gov/signup to get updates on how I'm working for you. Be well, Ami Bera, M.D.Member of Congress P.S. Listening to you is my most important responsibility. I hope you will continue our conversation by taking my constituent survey at bera.house.gov/survey so I can learn more about your priorities and better represent you and your family in Congress.
