Big Brother watching over you?

Show us the data.
That’s the message behind a joint lawsuit seeking to force the Los Angeles law enforcement authorities to release a massive trove of information collected by ubiquitous cameras that read license plates and can thus track the movements of millions of motorists not suspected of any crime. The cameras, called automatic license plate readers (ALPRs), are on fixed locations, including stop lights, street signs and in squad cars. Each camera can record as many as 1,800 plates per minute, and more than 160 million "data points" have been collected in Los Angeles County, according to one report. Critics say that gives authorities a huge database on the comings and goings of ordinary citizens.

Just like anything else...it seems that the use of the technology has a legitimate purpose - for identifying cars of interest in crimes, etc. But yeah, I can see how this can make some people nervous.

I bet some husbands don't want their wives to get ahold of this.... Laughing
