Emergency call system for all new cars by 2018



An emergency call system dubbed eCall will be installed in all new cars from March 2018 under an agreement reached at the European Parliament.

The system will send an automated call to the emergency services in the event of an accident.

Research suggests that the mandatory use of the system could halve response times, especially in rural areas.

But one expert questioned why it was going to take so long to be implemented.

The proposal was originally made in 2012 but was delayed for a variety of reasons, including privacy concerns.

Critics were unsure of the need for a government-mandated in-car system that would track a vehicle's location.

Under the new deal, the eCall system will give emergency services only basic data such as:

type of vehicle
fuel used
time of accident
location
Antonio Avenoso, executive director of the European transport safety council welcomed the initiative.

"Getting emergency services to the scene of a crash quickly is crucial to preventing deaths. So, this technology will save lives," he said.

"However, it's regrettable that it will be several years before we see all new cars fitted with the system and that other vehicles aren't covered by the legislation yet.

"These are missed opportunities to extend the safety benefits further, with little or no justification."

The rules are now subject to formal votes in the European Parliament and by all member states, likely to take place in March next year.

I had a crash and the car I was in was mangled, I have also been in a few other crashes non of which were my fault. Non of these needed an ambulance, so do they send an ambulance if these new wonderful cars have a crash and waste time and money. Not to mention where ambulances are supposed to go, where someone is injured etc.?.
Picture of the car I was in, no one was injured.

What about if there's an airbag system failure and it brings the light on? Will that then call the emergency services because it's Brought the light on? Needs careful planning waste of time and money realistically

They will also be able to find you if you have not paid tax or MOT or SORN and even Insurance. That's why its a government mandated system--being sold to us under "safety" .

Smacks more of big brother. Will be interesting to see if they make it an offence for you to remove the system
