General Motors installed technology in its latest line of Corvette cars so owners can record video, audio and driving data when the owner isn’t using the car. It’s been compared to a baby monitor or nanny cam as it’s used by a Corvette owner to protect their ‘baby’ from people (valets, rebellious teenagers) who might take the sports car out for unapproved drives.
What GM did not consider was the law. In 11 states, both parties must consent to recording a conversation or interaction. GM has sent a letter to Corvette drivers telling them not to use the feature. Or, if they do, to “obtain consent from the vehicles occupants.”
