    I'm surprised that the law wasn't written to also make the vehicle manufacturers provide tire pressure data to the NSA, where they would be stored in a huge searchable database to prevent terrorism.....

    Except I thought the primary reason people hated direct TPMS was because they were too cheap to buy replacement sensors when needed, and from that perspective, this doesn't really save them any money. If you're going to put them in a pressure vessel, why not put them in your wheels, where they'll do what they're designed to do?
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    The second article that Jack linked to provided one scenario where a TPMS system is "just what they asked for, but not what they wanted." There are a lot of people (most on the left coast) who do driving off-road in the sand dunes and stuff. They intentionally lower their pressures for buoyancy on loose materials, and they apparently go low enough to trigger the TPMS alarms.

    FWIW, I'm probably the only person crazy enough to willingly add an aftermarket TPMS system to my own vehicle. I bought it for the race car hauler tires, and wound up putting the sensors on my truck instead.....

    Another bullshit conspiracy................or is it?

    I wonder if the 757 had TPMS telemetry.

    At least I get a good speech to listen to before my rights were impeded.



    Sure did.............
