-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
THIS WEEK, THE "CALIFORNIA AIR-RESOURCES BOARD" MAY ADOPT NEW REGULATIONS ON THE TRACKING, COLLECTION, AND STORAGE OF DRIVER-DATA.  HOWEVER, CURT AUGUSTINE--OF THE "ALLIANCE OF AUTOMOBILE-MANUFACTURERS'" SACRAMENTO-OFFICE--SAYS THAT THERE'S STILL TIME FOR THE PUBLIC TO MAKE ITS VOICE HEARD...

(AUGUSTINE):
"
THE REGULATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR ADOPTION AT THE BOARD'S MEETING, ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY [SEPTEMBER 24TH AND 25TH].  AND, IF APPROVED, THEY COULD TAKE EFFECT A YEAR FROM NOW.  WE BELIEVE, THOUGH, THAT SERIOUS QUESTIONS REMAIN--ABOUT THE UNPRECEDENTED AMOUNT OF PERSONAL DRIVING-BEHAVIOR THAT MAY BE USED FOR EVENTUAL GOVERNMENT-REVIEW AND -MONITORING.  THIS INCLUDES HOW FAST A PERSON DRIVES, HOW FAR THEY DRIVE THEIR CAR, AND HOW MUCH GAS AND ELECTRICITY THEY USE.  THESE REGULATIONS WOULD APPLY TO ALL GAS-VEHICLES, EVEN HYBRIDS, THAT ARE SOLD IN CALIFORNIA--REGARDLESS OF WHERE THEY'RE MANUFACTURED, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY'RE PRIVATELY OR PUBLICLY OWNED.  WE URGE ALL CALIFORNIANS TO LET THEIR STATE-LEGISLATORS--AND GOVERNOR BROWN--KNOW THAT THESE REGULATIONS GO TOO FAR."
