Police are blackmailing motorists into installing cellphone monitoring devices

Since 2016, New York motorists are being forced asked to let the police spy on their cellphones for a minimum of 90 days.

In Nassau County, motorists are asked to pay hundreds of dollars to enter the 'Distracted Driver Education Program' (DDEP). The Feds, claim to offer motorists a choice, either dispute the texting while driving ticket in court, accept a 5 point moving violation or enter the DDEP.

Before a motorist can enter DDEP they have to pay a distracted driving citation which can be anywhere from $50 and $400 and have to pay an instillation fee of $125.00 for the in-car device. 

According to an article in the Massapequa Patch, Nassua County police wrote 8,000 distracted driving tickets in 2015. To translate that into dollars, that's $4.2 million in revenue law enforcement collects from motorists yearly.

State and towns across the country are looking for new ways to balance budgets and using traffic citations to balance budgets is nothing new. So it's reasonable to assume DDEP will eventually go national. (A Google search for 'Distracted Driver Education Programs' returned over 2.2. million hits.)

Motorists must pay the police to spy on them

Motorists who agree to enter the DDEP must sign a Plea Agreement, that allows police to spy on their text messages for a minimum of 90 days!

How do motorists enter the program?
"The motorist signs a plea agreement (page 9 of this packet is executed and is retained by the court, page 3 is the motorist’s copy)admitting to improper use of an electronic device, acknowledges the signing and understanding of the document before the court, pays $283 ($338 if issued on or after 1/2/2017) in fines and fees to the cashier immediately upon leaving the courtroom, and immediately purchases online and installs in the car the motorist uses most frequently, a device called “DriveID” (approximately $125) which mounts to the windshield like an EZ-PASS and works along with the Bluetooth in the car and an app called “DRIVEPROTECT”that the motorist must install on their phone and leave running at all times." 

DriveID is made by CellControl a United Kingdom company that spies on motorists worldwide. 

CellControl also works with Verizon and insurance companies like Liberty Mutual, Allstate, Esurance, Arbella and Ohio Mutual to spy on motorists. 

Nothing suspicious about that right? Insurance companies would never use DriveID data to raise our rates, right?
Motorists admit to being guilty with no right to appeal

Motorists who sign the DDEP admit to being guilty with no right to appeal.
To recap, motorists are 'asked' to pay hundreds of dollars to join DDEP, admit to being guilty and give up the right to an Appeal. Police who swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, have no fear of being cross-examined because motorists have given away their rights.
To be clear, the government isn't really 'asking motorists to give up their rights', This is blackmail pure and simple.

Merriam Webster defines blackmail as...
B::the payment that is extorted.

This is exactly what DDEP is, all about.
DriveID allows police to spy on everything


An excerpt taken from CellControl's 'Solutions to Stop Texting and Driving' reveals how police can use DriveID to get detailed driving histories of everyone.
You can't make this crap up, CellControl and DriveID were designed to spy on motorist's driving performance!

A word of caution, once police have access to a cell phone, you should assume there's a backdoor allowing them to spy on the cellphone in the future without a warrant.

Still doubt that DDEP will go national? Last month CellControl and the NHTSA announced that April was National Distracted Driving Awareness month. 
What's happened to American policing? Police don't care about our Bill of Rights anymore and have resorted to blackmailing motorists.
