Who is this man and what is he up to? You need to know.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Administrator David Strickland testified before Congress the intent of his department – his unelected administrators – to require vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) radios and computers to share all data about each vehicle with all other vehicles. What information?
– Your speed
– Your direction
– Your vehicle’s latitude and longitude
– Your vehicle’s heading angle, speed, lateral acceleration, longitudinal acceleration, yaw rate, throttle position, brake status, steering angle, headlight status, turn signal status, vehicle length, vehicle width, vehicle mass, bumper height, and the number of occupants in the vehicle
What his unelected department proposes is a wireless mesh network comparable to a cellphone network. This type network can relay information infinite distances, from one car to the next.
By now you have probably figured out where this is ultimately going: federal monitoring of your every movement.
Question: When did managing highway traffic become a federal prerogative? At what point did the states cede control over highways to the federal government?
Answer: The states have never ceded control of highways to the federal government.
I quote the Tenth Amendment:
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”
Contact your Congressional delegation, your elected Representative and your two elected Senators. Tell them to oppose mandatory V2V implementation planned by the NHTSA.
