Access to Data Petition Reaches 15,000 Signatures
November 26, 2019—A petition created by the national education and advocacy campaign Your Car. Your Data. Your Choice. reached 15,000 petition signatures on Friday, Nov. 22.
Newer model cars today are equipped with advanced technologies that enable real-time, wireless transmission of data related to driver behavior, GPS location and car health, including maintenance and repair information. Without control of and direct access to the diagnostic and repair information wirelessly transmitted from cars, consumers could face greater inconvenience, increased costs and fewer options for repair and maintenance services for their car.
Your Car. Your Data. has secured the support and engagement of several vocal and high-profile National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) professionals, including Clay Millican, Blake Alexander, Erica Enders and Megan Meyer, who have helped raise awareness of this issue among their fans. Millican and Alexander recently met with policymakers in Washington, D.C. to discuss the issue and its potential impact on the nation's driver.
