Democrats Quietly Unveil Frightening Bill To Allow Them To ‘Monitor’ And Activate ‘Kill Switch’ In All New Cars

America’s slow slip into Authoritarianism is under way.

Democrats have introduced a new bill that would give the U.S. government the frightening ability to monitor drivers and activate a ‘kill switch’ in all new vehicles from 2026. reports: “Perhaps the worst part about the kill switch is that it would have a backdoor, allowing the police and other law enforcement agencies access,” writes Ken Macon. “The speculation is that a warrant would not be needed to access the kill switch. The other problem with backdoors is that they are accessible to hackers.”

The definition of ‘driver impairment’ could also be applied in a more vague sense, opening the door for all kinds of abuse.

It’s not inconceivable that in the future, such schemes could be linked to Chinese-style social credit score programs which punish people who express the ‘wrong’ opinions’ by limiting their access to their own vehicle.

The likelihood of this would be heightened if transport move towards a system of communal renting of vehicles, where a certain personal rating has to be met before a customer is allowed to use such services.

As we previously highlighted, starting this summer, all new cars sold in the EU will by law contain a ‘black box’ accessible by authorities that records driving data.
