My thought exactly. In most cases, the black box is not going togive law enforcement anything they did not already know or can not easily discover with a little work. Right now the black boxes are in their infantcy so they will be questionable in court, or at the very least, challengeable. As GTNOS said, a warrant would be needed, and beleive it or not, judges do not hand warrants out like candy, the law enforcement will need probable cause...an accident is likely to be that. At that point, there is likely enough evidence to the fact that the black box will provide nothing more than confirm already discovered facts. I am a big advocate for protecting the right of privacy, but I am not overally concerned regarding these boxes.
