So since I have a security camera focused on my car and the Onstar app to keep track of the mileage and stuff I guess you could say I am spying on my car.....

You know this idea just hit me with the new Performance Data Recorder in the C7 Z06. The amount of information that thing can give you is amazing and it has a camera recording your moves when enabled and it is a wifi hot spot. I'm wondering when people will start hacking cars or putting viruses on them. Imagine having to but McAfee Virus Scan for your Camaro

Storing the data is not a problem either for the same reasons, though it could be limited to the last hour or 24 hours before rolling it over.
Who is doing the storage and processing of all this data though? Sending it is not an issue, but the backend would be something that no one would want to do for free, hell, we have a fairly large and high end datacenter on site and I can just imagine presenting this to management, the blank stares would be like lasers.

Bingo! This is why I cancelled OnStar and the insurance "drive safe" thing. OnStar knows exactly how you drive at any time, and reports to your insurance company if you are on the program. DON'T DO IT!

If it comes to this, I envision the same senario as red light cameras. A company owns and operates the system, mails you a ticket and keeps 70-80% of the revenue.

This is why I am weary in participating fully in the drive safe program. I got 6 months free of OnStar and told them I'd join in, little did they know, I did not call my insurance :P. I lost out on another free 6 months but it ain't worth higher insurance costs hehe

And as far as I know so long as OnStar is active they know exactly where you are at all times, the GPS works both ways, to direct you and for OnStar to be able to find you. In addition they know you're speed, they know how many miles you have till you are empty, they know your oil life, they know if you have a flat tire, etc etc

There's even a microphone in the car!

You can't walk around life being afraid of all this, this is our society now, it came with all the technology that we love.... smart phones are more dangerous than our cars.....

- Nobody is reporting you for cruising (or speeding) at this point...if you want to do the typical 10 mph over, do it....the little black box will not get you the ticket, the nice Police Officer will.

This is so much like the people posting threats to Facebook if their information they post on social media gets leaked on social media...if you don't want to get caught, don't do it.

Everyone acts like they are living a life in the CIA and every part of it should be secret, yet they post every bit of it on social media! If you want to live the super-secret squirrel life, that is cool…give up your iPhone, computer, satellite TV (with the Smart TV functions), etc…but (or build so no one else knows where it is) a house in the mountains somewhere. Grow your own food so the frequent buyer cards you use at Food Lion does not let anyone know what items you are eating…and live the quite life.

Now, am I one of those CIA spies that are looking into your every move? Nope…Do I want the government knowing every time I have sex? Nope…So, if I put it on social media, I expect others to know about it. If I speed on the roads, I expect that someone could find out. If tracking an idiot driving over 100 mph on the street saves my daughter’s life because he/she was busted before running a red light and T-Boning her car, would I be happy? You dang skippy!
Yes Obey your master , Any violation should be penalised , maybe there should be a satellite on every car and person , and every time you go
over the speed limit or not hit your turn signal , or do a rolling stop , you should receive a ticket and fine and should have to pay the penalty , More laws and fines that is the answer

That leaves us with an almost inevitable scandal. Surveillance supervisors will try to prioritize vehicles that are more likely to break driving rules. It would lead to a scandal where some whistleblower would claim that only people in fast cars or only people under 25 years old would be busted. We, as Americans, would be faced with a decision. Do we accept age discrimination the same way that we do with auto insurance or discrimination based on our freedom to choose a fast car, or do we challenge surveillance of American citizens?

I'll leave that to you.

In summary, if there is nationwide surveillance anytime soon, it'll be mediocre at best and it won't be effective. If it ever happens, though, I still expect Americans not to tolerate it.
There wouldn't be a need to pay workers to sit around all day. It would take me all of 10 minutes to program an application to automatically ping the police anytime a vehicle exceeds a speed limit. Could go one step further and just automatically issue a citation by mail.

So if you want to be off the grid, go. If you don't care use the soc sites.

I know they are watching, and I could give 3 shits. I'm a law abiding citizen, so they are pretty bored watching me all the time. I don't do anything illegal(I don't consider speeding and defaulted loans illegal activity, hence the difference between commercial and consumer loans.).

Look for the money. Seek the sources of these spying activities, see who's footing the bills, and you'll know why. FBI, CIA, NSA; does it matter? Most Americans aren't doing anything. It's all part of the marketing plan. Sell sell sell. Now if they detect illegal activity then by all means arrest, but make it stick. I mean arms drugs bombs. Terrorist activity. Nip it in the bud.

In addition to insurance companies tracking mileage...They are exploring how, over the next decade, they can move to a system in which drivers pay per mile of road they roll over.

"This really is a must for our nation. It is not a matter of something we might choose to do," said Hasan Ikhrata, executive director of the Southern California Assn. of Governments, which is planning for the state to start tracking miles driven by every California motorist by 2025. "There is going to be a change in how we pay these taxes. The technology is there to do it."

Incorrect....

A simple algorithm with Google maps could track this data and issue tickets based on the post speed limit and how fast your going. Google = Skynet!

Then couldn't they also adjust your speed limiter remotely to the speed limit so nobody would ever speed again?

Haha! Not in SC. Exception- under a state of emergency via the president or governor of SC, they can use this method. However, the arresting officer must PERSONALLY hand you any remote camera ticket within one hour to you. So basically no camera tickets...at least not yet.
