Re: Backing Up in Parking Lots

Many new cars have a device that keeps a record of speed, if the accelerator or brake is pressed, and other info and saves the last 5 seconds to a few minutes of this data when a crash is detected.

In more extreme crash cases, like if someone is injured this data is actually used in court. But worth considering asking for if you are ever in a wreck and you believe you were in the right.

The first link is a case in Canada where the box showed that the person was not only driving recklessly he didn't even take his foot off the gas when he smashed into the other car.
