CFA Calls on FCC to Grant Petition for Rulemaking, Stay Operation of DSCRC Devices Until Privacy Concerns Are Addressed

Arguing that Americans do not need to have ‘Facebook on Wheels’ imposed on them by government fiat in the name of public safety, CFA is calling on the Federal Communications Commission to grant a petition for rulemaking and an emergency stay of operation of Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) Service in the 5.850-5.925 GHz Band. Permitting DSRC to operate commercial applications on what is being sold to the American public as mandatory safety systems will  further aggravate the problems of maintaining privacy for America’s drivers and passengers.
