    All new Vehicals will have to have "Kill Switches".


    New Law Will Install Kill Switches In All New Cars

    Once again, drivers get screwed by politicians in DC…

    Back in 1998, sci-fi TV series The X-Files aired an episode called “Kill Switch” about an AI gone rogue. Told when the internet was still accessed by most using dial-up modems, it was a fascinating tale of technology run amuck, a message about not handing too much of your life over to the digital world. While it might also seem like a sci-fi tale, soon enough the United States federal government could force automakers to install kill switches authorities can access and use to shut down any newer vehicle.
    Refresh your memory about some of the other crazy things which were in the infrastructure bill here.
    To many, that might sound like a wonderful idea. After all, we’ve seen wanted criminals who have fled from police only to crash into a car with a family inside, killing innocents as they try to avoid capture. Being able to stop the pursuit early and almost instantaneously seems like a wonderful thing, a potential lifesaver any law-abiding citizen would enthusiastically embrace.



    According to an article written by former U.S. Representative Bob Barr, hidden away in the recently passed infrastructure bill, the very one I warned before would negatively impact drivers across the country if it were to pass, is a measure to install vehicle kill switches into every new car, truck, and SUV sold in this country. The regulation likely won’t be enforced for five years, so maybe there’s time to do something about this.
    As we’ve seen both in this country and others recently, what constitutes “law-abiding” can change drastically overnight. For example, in September a car was pulled over in New Zealand and the occupants arrested when police discovered the trunk was full of Kentucky Fried Chicken meals. They were smuggling the fast food to customers in locked-down Auckland, against quarantine measures. Yet not too long before, delivering restaurant orders to people was considered a reputable, legal activity.



    It gets even better: Barr points out that the bill, which has been signed into law by President Biden, states that the kill switch, which is referred to as a safety device, must “passively monitor the performance of a driver of a motor vehicle to accurately identify whether that driver may be impaired.” In other words, Big Brother will constantly be monitoring how you drive. If you do something the system has been programmed to recognize as driver impairment, your car could just shut off, which could be incredibly dangerous.
    There is the possibility the kill switch program might measure your driving as impaired, then when you try to start the car up again the engine won’t fire up. That would potentially leave you stranded.
    But wait, there’s more. This kill switch “safety” system would be open, or in other words there would be a backdoor. That would allow police or other government authorities to access it whenever. Would they need a warrant to do that? Likely not. Even better, hackers could access the backdoor and shut down your vehicle.



    Barr points out what a tremendous violation of Americans’ privacy this is, and he’s right. In addition, the term “impaired driving” isn’t defined by the legislation, so it would be open to interpretation by regulators such as the Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Do you want government regulators helping to write algorithms which might force your car to pull over and stop because you might be a little tired instead of tipsy? There was never a debate on the House or Senate floor about this issue. Instead, this bill was passed through with many backroom deals I detailed out before here, if you care to learn more about that.
    It’s time for not only car enthusiasts but also regular Americans to get loud and tell their US Representatives and Senators what they think of laws like these. Obviously, our elected officials don’t care too much about our safety or privacy, so we need to remind them what we expect now and moving forward.

    I really hope that in this day and age no one is surprised by this.

    Well Dave, it's just another way to control Americans. If things keep going like they are, one day the Government will control all the utilities. If a certain area disagrees with a Government demand....off goes your electric and water, won't be any gas by then. Plus you can't go anywhere to get anything because your car has been shut-down. And, if you walk to the food store or any store, you will find that your Government Ration Card has been disabled until further notice. Next, the Dept. of Health and Human services will show up and take your kids because you are unable to provide for them. After your Government allotted one month of Critical Adjustment Time, and you still stand your ground, you will be labeled Domestic Terrorist and commit suicide in jail.

    But these days, are we surprised by this? There are hundreds of anti-American things going on.
    I never saw so many Americans hate their own country.
    Maybe we'll start getting people in Congress who will restore sanity, Billy.

    Dave, those who hate America, love living here. What they hate is the fact that up until 13 years ago, most of us lived our lives based on Christian beliefs and the Constitution, which is also based on Christian beliefs. We didn't tolerate immoral behavior or unlawful behavior. Which is now trying to be forced down our throats.
