I was reading about your "Springfield Man Found Guilty Of Drunk Driving" story on 5/26 and thinking, it would be nice if vehicles were equipped with small cameras (the size of an cell phone camera)on all four sides of a vehicle.
This could essentially provide lots of evidence for cases like this. The cost wouldn't be very much for automobile manufacturers because the cost of a iPhone camera is very minimal. It could also help prevent vehicle theft and all the various crimes that are committed in/with vehicles.
Now, I'd also be reluctant to have the government monitor/regulate such video feeds, but somehow we could use this technology to prevent or at least capture more criminals.
What do you think?
