Where have I heard this before?

(CNSNews.com) - Before the end of this year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will decide whether or not to begin the rulemaking process to mandate that newly manufactured cars include what is being called “vehicle-to-vehicle” (V2V) communications technology that constantly broadcasts via radio wave the car’s location, direction, speed and, possibly, even the number of passengers it is carrying. -  (Full story HERE)

"National Highway Traffic Safety Administration". That's one of those agencies created by our government to make laws that don't have to go through Congress to become required. Its a "rule", not a "law". Even though you can be fined or jailed for not following it.

And later in the story:

The downside is that such a transportation system would give the government at least the capability to exert increasing control over when, where, if--or for how much additional taxation--people are allowed to go places in individually owned vehicles. It could also give government the ability to track where people go and when.
The Obama administration says this is something it has “no plans” to do even if it does mandate V2V technology in all new cars. “NHTSA has no plans to modify the current V2V system design in a way that would enable the government or private entities to track individual motor vehicles,” a NHTSA spokesman told CNSNews.com. (emphasis mine)

The sheep trusting law abiding citizen with nothing to hide may now get in his car, announce his destination, sit back on his IPhone that the NSA is NOT recording, and relax in the assurance that Big Brother will take him where he wants to go.

Confident that he will NEVER be found out visiting his mistress...Heheheh, his wife actually thinks he's going to the OFFICE!

Safely arriving at his point of destination, he can be comfortable in the knowledge that his government is NOT keeping track of how long he remains, until he gets back in his vehicle and starts the return process to his home. An NHTSA spokesman SAID so.

Because we all know the NSA wouldn't DO that....Right?...Am I right....Tell me I'm right....
