New federal standards for "black boxes" that record information leading up to auto accidents will will take effect Sept. 1, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ruled on Tuesday.

The black boxes have raised fears about privacy protection and "big brother" monitoring of a person's activities.
