When does Apple get together with Detroit?

Or more directly, when will auto manufacturers build vehicles with cameras embedded in them? We already have the Iphone, or the Flip camera; why hasn’t anyone thought to put these in vehicles?

This simple mashup could have profound implications for Americans dealing with law enforcement. With an embedded camera setup, citizens now can operate on equal footing with law enforcement and have a far easier time proving claims of law enforcement misconduct. Other security needs are also met with the use of embedded cameras; it raises the costs of property crime, as criminals are now faced with the reality that without being able to destroy the video data they are leaving behind powerful incriminating evidence.

The technology for this is already in the market and it is modular, which means that auto manufacturers don’t even need to think about this. There are plenty of firms that make aftermarket addons for automobiles; you could develop a device as an addon suitable for even the most ancient of vehicles.
