2 Million Cars Have Emergency Vehicle Warning Devices Installed And That's Only The Beginning
Big Brother is inside your car and there is nothing you can do to stop it.
A recent article in CarScoops reveals that Stellantis is installing another government surveillance device in Chryslers, Dodges, Jeeps, and Ram vehicles built from 2018 forward, via an infotainment update.
A host of Stellantis models produced since the 2018 model year and sold in the U.S. now alert drivers to nearby firetrucks, ambulances, and road hazards, all because of a near-miss that a hearing-impaired Stellantis employee had with an emergency vehicle.
All cars built by Stellantis will have their vehicle’s infotainment system alert drivers of nearby emergency vehicles, and there is nothing you can do about it.
The HAAS alert system uses a vehicle’s infotainment system to send push-notices to drivers notifying them of approaching emergency vehicles.
Stellantis has forcibly installed HAAS into millions of cars across the country without a clear option to opt-out. Unless of course you turn off your infotainment system or purchase a different car.
Think of HAAS as government emergency alert messages on your phone but more invasive.
If you were wondering who helped develop HAAS, look no further than Homeland Security.
It has taken HAAS three years to use the $1M awarded to them by Homeland Security to put their emergency vehicle alert system in millions of vehicles across the country.
HAAS Alert, a Chicago-based startup whose mission is to make roadways safer by alerting drivers of emergency vehicles, announced today that it was awarded $1.1M by The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) to advance consumer vehicle safety solutions utilizing cellular technology that would allow approaching emergency response vehicles to warn other First Responders and civilian vehicles on the road.
DHS has helped create a 1 billion government surveillance alert system disguised as an emergency vehicle digital alert system.
This integration is a major milestone on the journey to safer roads. To date, Safety Cloud has processed more than 1 billion digital alerts to drivers. With this new partnership, even more drivers will now gain access to real-time alerts in their vehicle dashboard when they're in close proximity to an active emergency vehicle, tow truck, or other roadway hazard without having to download or utilize any additional third-party application.
A 2019 Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate article about HAAS should have served as a warning that the feds wanted to track everyone’s movements without a warrant.
The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is collaborating with “HAAS Alert,” a Chicago-based company developing and standardizing C-V2X (cellular vehicle-to-everything) technology that enables emergency response vehicles to send real-time digital alerts to supplement their lights and sirens. HAAS Alert’s system then streams real-time digital alerts and safety messages to drivers and connected cars.
Homeland Security’s involvement doesn’t end there. Stellantis’s head of corporate security has a bachelor’s degree from Siena Height’s Homeland Security, and CBT News mentions DHS as a shareholder in Stellantis’s new EV battery startup Lyten.
The HAAS alert system is so accurate, it knows where your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram is in real-time and notifies drivers within 30 seconds of an approaching emergency vehicle.
Safety Cloud digital alerts are delivered up to 30 seconds in advance of an emergency scene to give drivers ample time to make a safe decision and comply with state Move Over laws.
As the video above shows, drivers will be prompted with an “emergency vehicle on scene: slow down and move over” alert. That will more than likely be changed to police vehicle behind you: “pull your vehicle over, lower your windows and raise your hands” warnings in the future.
The 2019 Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate article basically alludes to police using HAAS to send messages to drivers like: pull over, raise your hands, exit the vehicle, etc.
“With appropriate improvements to HAAS Alert’s SafetyCloud, including the real-time dashboard, alerting algorithms, and software, first responders will be able to set desirable alerting distances, send alerts directly to vehicles and navigation apps, know how many vehicles are operating at a scene, and choose what types of alerts to share with both their colleagues and civilians,” DHS S&T Program Manager Dr. Angela Ervin said.
If a HAAS equipped vehicle fails to move to the side of the road in a timely fashion and a police officer asks Stellantis or HAAS to ID the owner of the vehicle, what do you think will happen?
If history is any indicator, Amazon Ring turned over customers videos to police without their consent at least 11 times last year. Do you really think Stellaantis or HAAS wouldn’t do the same but on a much larger scale?
Who needs Apple’s airtag to track a vehicle in real-time or Flock Safety’s license plate readers that can follow a vehicle as it moves throughout a city when 2 million plus vehicles have a HAAS alert system installed in them?
“I call 911 and let them know my car was just stolen,” Councilman Tommy Smigiel posited. “How quickly does it get put into the Flock camera system, registered, so they can track the movement of my vehicle through Little Creek Road, Hampton Boulevard, throughout the city?” “Very,” Norfolk Police chief Mark Talbot replied, saying police could track the car without even knowing its license plate number. “It would be difficult to drive anywhere of any distance without running into a camera.
The Flock cameras that record comings and goings across the city are just one component to Norfolk’s Real Time Crime Center that has been in the works and is slated for completion in the fall.
The future of 282 million car owners privacy hangs in the balance since all Big Brother has to do is force every car built from 2018 forward to have HAAS installed in their infotainment centers.
In the beginning of my story, I mentioned that Stellantis was installing another government spying device in cars. The second spying device is the government’s breathalyzer and iris scanning mandate that must be installed in every new car by 2026. Every vehicle manufacturer including Stellantis must install these intrusive government surveillance devices in new cars.
Amid the 2,702-page bipartisan infrastructure plan that could get a vote by the week’s end is a series of safety requirements for the vehicles set to travel on all those new and improved roads. The feds are set to make it more difficult to get behind the wheel drunk, requiring automakers to install technology in new cars to prevent drunk driving that could take the form of passive monitors for drivers’ breath, eye scans to check focus or even infrared touch tests on ignition buttons.
According to TechCrunch a third Big Brother surveillance device that will automatically brake your vehicle in an emergency could be installed in new cars and trucks.
If adopted as proposed, nearly all U.S. light vehicles will be required to have an automatic emergency braking system (AEB) technology three years after the publication of a final rule. Under the Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the AEB system would have to be capable of stopping and avoiding contact with a vehicle at speeds of up to 62 miles per hour.
I remember thinking two years ago, that driverless cars pulling over to the side of the road, rolling down their windows and unlocking their car doors for police was decades away but some new driverless cars forcibly pull a driver over to the side of the road if they think they are drowsy or unresponsive.
All that is left to destroy our right to travel freely is for Big Brother to force auto manufacturers to lock a cars’ doors, roll up their windows and forcibly drive motorists to a nearby police station so they can be fined for minor offenses or arrested for more serious offenses.
Installing Homeland Security-funded emergency vehicle notification systems in millions of cars is just the beginning of a vast national vehicle surveillance network.
