This app wants to spy on bad drivers, but it’s really all of us, too
The Washington Post - 06/22/2016
“We’re losing some of the granularity between car and driver that we’ve had in other contexts,” said Andrea Matwyshn, a professor of law and computer science at Northeastern University.
What if “bad drivers” get tracked using the app’s notifications? Do you have the right to know where any given driver might be at any time, even if he or she is on the other side of town?
In a word, yes.
“Imagine if this was 50 years ago,” Matwyshn said. “Nothing would stop a driver from keeping a little black book of all the cars they come across. We might have thought that person be a little overzealous, but today, this app is that version of the little black book.”
