USDOT, NHTSA, President Obama: Stop Law Mandating Microwave Surveillance Units in All American Cars!
  
  

 


Why this is important

US Dept. of Transportation and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are trying to pass legislation requiring V2V Communications (vehicle to vehicle) which would force all vehicles in the US to have RF transmitters (or wireless recording and communicating devices) in their cars. This is being misrepresented by the NHTSA and USDOT as a "traffic safety" project, when clearly it can and will be used for more mass surveillance on innocent Americans. Furthermore, the proposed surveillance devices to be placed in the vehicles cannot be characterized as "safe" because the WHO has deemed this radiation a class 2b carcinogen, meaning may cause cancer in humans. We do not want to risk cancer merely by getting in our vehicles or even walking down the street getting exposed to yet another layer of this toxic microwave radiation from the V2V Communications devices. Lower car accident incidence and safer driving can be created by drivers not texting while driving, following other basic traffic and safety rules and regulations and using common sense. Our government agencies need to STOP surveilling innocent Americans, not create laws that add one more layer of surveillance for people to worry about.
