“The US Federal Government is planning to enact legislation nicknamed ‘V2V’, for Connected Vehicle Communications. It is planned to be mandated on all private and commercial vehicles.
“On September 1, 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) awarded three cooperative agreements, collectively worth more than $45 million, to initiate a Design/Build/Test phase of the Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilot Deployment Program in three sites: Wyoming, New York City (NYC), and Tampa.
“Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office announced that these technologies are, ‘Designed to save lives, improve personal mobility, enhance economic productivity, reduce environmental impacts, and transform public agency operations.’
“This legislation effectively asks citizens to forfeit one of the last bastions of personal freedom – individual mobility.”
