About 4 months ago we covered a story that made me tighten the straps on my tinfoil hat: a program to install permanent, stationary license plate scanners on the freeway. At the time, the government officials assured us that the information was only to be used to combat drug trafficking. Feel free to go back and read the post: it was creepy, yet the official position was along the lines of “oh, you silly dears. We have only the purest of intentions for our fancy-schmancy privacy-invading technology. Don’t worry your little head about it“.
That was a scant 4 months ago.
Seems they’ve been workin’ some late nights over at ‘Big Brother Industries’ since then:

Oh, yeah: this should work out just great.
You can either find out if this is going on in YOUR community, or you can shrug your shoulders and say, “Oh, well”.
Hey, it’s just freedom, after all. It’s not like it’s that important….
