compulsory from 2022 in all cars

As of next year, new vehicles circulating in Europe will all be equipped with a black box, with the aim of improving road safety.

In just one year, in May 2022, things will change for new vehicles in Europe. To improve road safety, they will all be equipped with a Black Box !

A measure from the EU

This year theEuropean Union increase the measures concerning safety on the roads of the old continent.

Recently it is the introduction of a dematerialized virtual license for the entire euro zone which was at the center of the debates, in order to allow better control within Europe, in particular to allow the police to better identify the drivers outside their country of residence.

This time, the measure does not concern motorists but rather manufacturers. The EU wants to make it compulsory installing a black box in all new vehicles sold from May 2022. The measurement will in particular make it possible to better understand the reasons for an accident.

A new device that divides

For now, the new is not yet unanimous among drivers, and this can be understood. What about on-board recordings? These will be sliced ​​into five second slices and will include multiple data. Among them, we find: the speed of the vehicle, the activation of the brakes, the angle of the steering wheel, the force of the collision, the wearing of the seat belt or the engine speed.

Moreover, unlike the most famous black boxes, those located in airplanes, those in cars will not be able to record sounds inside the cockpit.

This was one of motorists’ major privacy concerns, but the text assures they will not be recorded and the car’s other records will be used. only by law enforcement. Finally, the precise location of this new device has not yet been defined, but will be positioned so that it is impossible to deactivate by the driver.

Last concern of drivers, vehicle prices that would be increased. To this question, the MEPs replied that there should not be “a significant increase in prices for consumers”.
