L.O Report December 2017

 

HB5013 – Auto Insurance Reform.  Thank you to Dondi for his informative article about HB5013  in the November Rider.  Thankfully, this bill did not pass. It was discovered that this bill was part of a package with other bills.  Because of its size and importance, the bill was taken out of the package and voted on separately.

 

I hope members also contacted their representative regarding this bill. Be sure to thank those who voted against this bill and educate those who voted for it.

 

Larry Flood,

L.O., ABATE Region 20

 

 

MRF News:

 

HR735 requires manufacturers to disclose to consumers the presence of date recorders (Black Boxes) on vehicles.  This bill would require manufactures to give the option to turn on or off these recorders.

 

Manufacturers could use information for warrantee work. Boxes could become proprietary, meaning they repair it and own information in it, such as driving habits. They could also be used against drivers by law enforcement and insurance companies in the case of an accident.

 

Self-driving vehicles.  U of M will soon start trials for driverless taxis. Top speed will be 55 mph.  Don’t quote me on this part, but the testing could be started in Ann Arbor.
