All new EU cars to have auto emergency alerts

The EU has decreed that all new cars made will have in-car emergency systems that alert emergency services automatically in the event of an accident.
All new EU cars to have auto emergency alerts

MEPs have called for the systems to be installed in all new cars by 2018, with the hope that this will become the industry standard.

Studies have shown that this measure could cut emergency response times in half, particularly in remote regions. Westminster has, however, dismissed the proposals as not cost-effective.

Despite the enthusiasm over the idea, some MEPs have expressed doubts over what this would mean over privacy and cost.

 The Green Party’s Jan Philipp Albrecht claims that the installation of such devices should be optional, in order to guarantee that people’s privacy won’t be exposed by tracking. He said that the device could be used by the authorities to track vehicles when looking for a person’s whereabouts.

 Olga Sehnalova, of the Czech Social Democrats, has dismissed these fears saying that privacy is assured under the scheme and that the positives far outweigh the negatives.

 Cars under the scheme will be able to call the existing emergency number of 112, with further information being relayed to 999. It is thought that drivers will have to pay an extra £72 for new cars if the system is implemented.
