Safety advocates say regulators need to do more. This is how the Federal government works. One little issue made into a problem and then solved by creating regulation. NHTSA wants to regulate the maps on your phone, and gps unit. Why do they need regulation - when they didn't work people went to other providers. No - Distracted driving - really - this is why I always opposed the no cell phone when driving, no text when driving laws. But these guys are Federal. And those were local (at least state) <x files theme> If they regulate the app, can't they demand the data back to track your every step? hmmm, what is that dude doing off a Forest Service road? http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/16/business/agency-aims-to-regulate-map-aids-in-vehicles.html?_r=0 <at the risk to touching on religion> In the beginning, man told God, "It's not my fault, YOU didn't .... " and now we live in this place.
