I think this a good idea providing that the data cannot be used for traffic infringement or surveillance purposes against car owners. The United States is ahead of us in this regard because various car manufacturers have private services which can track your vehicle in case of theft and disable it if need be. The service can be used to summons emergency services if there is a collision and also summons the local RACV equivalent in the car breaks down. I'd much prefer a government service with the privacy controls I mentioned as this would probably be cheaper (non profit) and quicker to access by Vicpol.
