License Plate Tracking for All

July 27, 2006 - Filed under: security — Tags:

Wired News has an article on new powerful infrared cameras to read license plates.

You knew it had to happen sooner or later. First the police in several cities started using these devices, some of which can read sixty license plates per second, for finding stolen cars and make windfall profits from ticket scofflaws.

You have to know it’s only a matter of (probably short) time before all of the companies that are already collecting too much information onyou pick up on this and have these readers installed everywhere and link them to their already massive databases of what used to be your personal information.

I really hate to see this happen, but I guess there’s no stopping it now and there’s no end in sight. Can’t we get any good privacy laws?
