WASHINGTON- The feds want cars to have the technology to talk to each other in hopes of preventing collisions.

Transpiration Secretary Anthony Foxx says technology has the potential to reduce crashes, injuries and deaths on the highways and streets.

It could work this way: a radio transponder would continually transmit a vehicles position,direction, speed and other information.

Cars and trucks would receive the information from other vehicles and a computer could alert the driver to impending collision.

The government is supposed to issue a report on research for new systems and could issue a rule to make it reality before President Obama leaves office.
