Documents leaked by the civil liberties campaign group Statewatch show that the European Network of Law Enforcement Technology Services (Enlets) is considering fitting cars with a stop device so that police and other law enforcement agencies can stop vehicles by remote control.
The document, published on December 4th, 2013 states:
“This project will work on a technological solution that can be a ‘build in standard’ for all cars that enter the European market”. It is not clear what cost implications that would have for car makers.
The implication is that not only cars produced in Europe would be fitted with the devices, but all cars that are bound for the European market would have the stop mechanism fitted.
Hackers here in the U.S. have demonstrated devices that can stop cars by remote control and there is little doubt that the technology will become available both in Europe and the United States.
Abuse by law enforcement officers has seen a massive increase of late. It’s alarming to know that at some point in the not too distant future even getting to your car will afford no opportunity of escape from police officers hell bent on beating your brains out.
