1984 - NYC unveils program to track your car

(CBS New York) — It’s a new city pilot program to track how you drive, when you drive, how fast your drive and how much gas you use.
The Department of Transportation says it will help fix street problems. Others say its like Big Brother is watching you, CBS2’s Marcia Kramer reported Friday.
It’s a tiny black box about the size of a pack of gum that is installed right under the steering wheel. It will allow city officials under a program called “Drive Smart” to collect and access data about how you drive — if you drive like a maniac, or if you’re Mr. or Mrs. Slow Poke.
“It can tell the g-force of hard stopping or hard acceleration and a hard turn,” DOT senior project manager Alex Keating said. “So the driver, as well as the service provider, are able to look at speeds, hard-breaking events, time of day and basic GPS.”
City officials say they’ll use to information to make the streets safer, but drivers can also allow various DOT partners to use the information. 
Allstate, for example, will give you insurance discounts of 10-30 percent, and Metropia will get you home faster with less congested routes — all of it hooked up to smartphone apps.
