1. A method of transferring stored event data from an event detector in a vehicle to a remote evaluation server, comprising the steps of:

  • capturing driving events at an event detector in a vehicle and storing the captured driving events in a data storage area;

    monitoring the output of at least a first sensor in the vehicle;

    detecting an access point and sending the stored driving event data to said-access point over a wireless link, said detecting and sending responsive to a data transfer condition being detected;

    searching for an access point in response to detection of at least said predetermined output from said first sensor, the data transfer condition comprising a combination of said predetermined output emanating from at least said first sensor and detection of the proximity of the vehicle to said access point; and

    transferring the data from said access point to an evaluation server only when said predetermined sensor output is detected and the vehicle is in sufficient proximity with said access point to support wireless communications between said event detector and said access point;

    said data transfer condition comprising at least detection of a predetermined output from said first sensor.
