Legislation

Driver Privacy Act of 2015
https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/766

Sec. 2) Declares that any data in an event data recorder required to be installed in a passenger motor vehicle (as provided for under Department of Transportation [DOT] regulations concerning the collection, storage, and retrievability of onboard motor vehicle crash event data) is the property of the owner or lessee of the vehicle in which the recorder is installed, regardless of when the vehicle was manufactured.

Prohibits a person, other than the owner or lessee of the motor vehicle, from accessing data recorded or transmitted by such a recorder unless:

  • a court or other judicial or administrative authority authorizes the retrieval of such data subject to admissibility of evidence standards;
  • an owner or lessee consents to such retrieval for any purpose, including vehicle diagnosis, service, or repair;
  • the data is retrieved pursuant to certain authorized investigations or inspections of the National Transportation Safety Board or DOT;
  • the data is retrieved to determine the appropriate emergency medical response to a motor vehicle crash; or
  • the data is retrieved for traffic safety research, and the owner's or lessee's personally identifiable information and the vehicle identification number are not disclosed.

(Sec. 3) Directs the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, after completing a study and submitting a report to Congress, to promulgate regulations concerning the amount of time event data recorders installed in passenger motor vehicles may capture and record vehicle-related data to provide accident investigators with pertinent crash-related information.

Event data recorders(EDRs), also known as "black boxes" or "sensing and diagnostic modules," capture information, such as the speed of a vehicle and the use of a safety belt, in the event of a collision to help understand how the vehicle’s systems performed. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in December 2012 proposed a rule that would require automakers to install EDRs in light passenger vehicles. Most car manufacturers currently install these devices in new vehicles. 

Seventeen states--Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington--have enacted statutes relating to event data recorders and privacy. Among other provisions, these states provide that data collected from a motor vehicle event data recorder may only be downloaded with the consent of the vehicle owner or policyholder, with certain exceptions.
