Thank you for writing in. Newer vehicle are equipped with a "black box", or a recording device that will take a "screenshot" of vehicle data in the case of a crash. It will record speed data, air bad data, and a lot of other information that can be used to determine what the vehicle was doing at the moment of impact, and what happened immediately after. This is the only recording devices that are manufacture installed, and they do not always take recordings. It is prompted by an accident or extreme event.
