1. Car maintains log of all messages, not just the ones that the user showed interest in
1. log contains some vehicle identifier and timestamp
1. optionally location of vehicle
1. latitude/longitude
2. number of p2p hops from car
2. Incident occurs
1. airbag deployment
2. impact detection
3. sudden braking
4. user indicates incident
3. Car computer scans logs and gathers data from within some time frame surrounding the accident
4. Car computer resolves identifiers into something that allows the computer to contact the vehicle
5. Car computer sends each vehicle a message
1. In realtime
1. Requesting its data
2. Requesting that it mark its data from that time frame as important and not delete it for some time
2. After the fact
1. requesting its data
