New Black Box Rule Isn’t Enough to Hold Drivers Accountable For Ped Crashes

Biking ElsewhereHighlight:

All good information. But black boxes don’t always work if it was a pedestrian or a cyclist who was struck.

Event data recorders are part of the airbag safety system. They’re what tells the airbags to deploy. And if the crash isn’t forceful enough to trigger the airbags, the EDR doesn’t record the data.
