More and more car makers are installing black boxes, similar to the ones on airplanes, to help determine the causes of car accidents. But Senator Tony Stamas tells News Ten he wants to make sure that data does not fall into the wrong hands which raises what her terms, "a basic privacy issue."

A lobbyist for the state insurance industry however discounts those concerns saying there is no documentation that the "factual" information has been abused. Peter Kuhnmenuch says use of the black box can actually reduce the cost of car insurance.

Stamas says using the data for designing safer roads and saving lives is one thing, getting into a driver's personal life is another.
