FYI "Right to repair" in effect now, 2017

Just FYI.

This effects new vehicles (2007 and up) but basically means that all the "secret" dealer-only repair tools/codes and data are now wide open.

That can be good or it can be bad. I am worried about the driverless and flying cars and the effect when "stupid" ("stupid" in this case covers a lot of territory) realizes what can be done to miss-use them.
