(OPEN):
THE "CALIFORNIA AIR-RESOURCES BOARD" HAS PROPOSED NEW REGULATIONS THAT WOULD GREATLY EXPAND THE AMOUNT OF DATA THAT'S COLLECTED FROM PRIVATELY OWNED VEHICLES.  HOWEVER, DAN GAGE--OF THE "ALLIANCE OF AUTOMOBILE-MANUFACTURERS"--BELIEVES THAT THE BOARD'S PROPOSAL REPRESENTS UNNECESSARY AND UNWARRANTED TRACKING OF PERSONAL BEHAVIOR...

(GAGE):
"
THESE REGULATIONS WOULD ALLOW THE COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA ABOUT DRIVING-BEHAVIOR--INCLUDING OPERATIONAL-USAGE, SPEED, AND DISTANCE, DOWN TO THE NEAREST METER.  THEY ALSO DON'T INCLUDE CRITICAL PRIVACY-SAFEGUARDS.  SO, SERIOUS QUESTIONS EXIST--ABOUT WHEN DATA WOULD BE COLLECTED BY THE GOVERNMENT, WHO WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO IT, HOW IT COULD BE USED, HOW LONG IT WOULD BE RETAINED BY THE GOVERNMENT, AND WHAT SECURITY-PROVISIONS WOULD BE PUT INTO PLACE, TO PREVENT BREACHES FROM GOVERNMENT-SERVERS.  THAT'S WHY WE'RE URGING CALIFORNIANS TO CONTACT THEIR STATE-LEGISLATORS--AND GOVERNOR BROWN--ABOUT THE BOARD'S PROPOSAL."
