Matos v. State

Case Date: 03/30/2005
Citation: Matos v. State, 899 So. 2d 403 (Fla. 4th DCA 2005)
Court Type: District Court of Appeal
Court: Fla. 4th DCA
Judge: Judge: Carole Y. Taylor

Whether the speed recording data from a vehicle black box after the crash was admissible under the Frye standard.


The Court upheld the trial court’s ruling and affirmed the admissibility of the black box evidence. The data from the black box satisfied the Frye standard and was generally accepted in the scientific community. Further, Florida’s speed recording statute did not apply, as this was a black box from a personal vehicle and the statute was only meant for law enforcement officers using radar.
