A Black Box for Car Crashes

New York Times, Jul 21 2013 - When Timothy P. Murray crashed his government-issued Ford Crown Victoria in 2011, he was fortunate, as car accidents go. Mr. Murray told the police he was wearing a seat belt and was not speeding. But a different story soon emerged - burried deep inside the car: the event data recorder, more commonly known as the black box.

About 96 percent of all new vehicles sold in the United States have the boxes, and in September 2014, if the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has its way, all will have them. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/22/business/black-boxes-in-cars-a-questio...
