Jan 20 - New Law Will Install k*ll 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 k*ll switches authorities can access and use to shut down any newer vehicle.


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, k*lling 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 k*ll 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 k*ll 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 k*ll 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 k*ll 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.

This is expected with all new electric vehicles connected to 5g , black boxes that will record conversations & crash data with the ability to disable the car so law enforcement can stop & frisk you while roughing you up . The man needs to have that control . Sleepy Joe is slipping in all kinds of nonsense into law like Bush & Obama did

This was 2014, the bill seems like it might make it mandatory that all car's have them........but most auto loan places have been doing this for damn near 12 years.....even the cheap buy here pay here places.

The good thing is it can be disabled by the right mechanic'

Ppl think they're gonna Paul walker away from a pursuit squad with chopper support

Current day: you're getting spike stripped or rammed off the road in 15 mins

Future: They'll probably take an hour to connect to the registry and another to put in an order to shut your sh*t down

I've had OnStar in my car for years and that comes installed with a k*ll switch. A lot of cars company's like Ford, Mercedes, BMW, Hyundai, and Tesla have systems that can remotely disable your vehicle.

you're not escaping the man, whether its on foot or in a vehicle

shieeet the only way you can really escape the law is if you flee on foot and hoof it the old school way and use cash for all transactions, but even then, they'll use technology to catch you lackin with the quickness. Then you gotta worry about crossing an international border... good luck with that

unless you get a significant jump start on them

Optional vs forced/mandated.

That’s fine people want their vehicles to be able to be shut down remotely without they consent or warrant by law enforcement.

Sure there’s plenty of factual faulty events with k*ll switches on the x amount of vehicles that have them now.

More of a “luxury” than a necessity.
