Many people who are EMF injured know that cars are problematic-and especially newer cars due to all the wireless installed. We’ve measured cars for electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) and found in newer cars there are EMFs from different sensors, including air conditioning and braking systems. The back seat of a Prius is a hot bed of batteries- not a safe place for a long drive!
The New York Times reported in 2008, “There is a legitimate scientific reason for raising the issue. The flow of electrical current to the motor that moves a hybrid vehicle at low speeds (and assists the gasoline engine on the highway) produces magnetic fields, which some studies have associated with serious health matters, including a possible risk of leukemia among children.”
Recently, Forbes author, Andy Greenberg reports on a new auto hazard- the ability for hackers to attack your car, causing your brakes to fail, gauges to deceive you, horn to honk, and other serious hazards. See video below.
Since these attacks are done using wireless signals, there’s also the possibility of random interference causing havock on newer cars.
In 2010 Toyota when was in trouble with its braking system, the LA times reported, “The troubled automaker says it is moving closer to adopting changes to its keyless starter system, a potential factor in sudden acceleration.”
Also in 2010 an angry auto sales ex-employee in Austin Texas remotely shut down 100 cars by disabling them, setting off car alarms and forcing car owners to miss work, or have their cars towed.
