RFID-enabled License plates to identify UK vehicles

:huh: :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh:

"...
The reader network, which includes fixed location readers (for use on the roadside) and portable readers (for use in surveillance vehicles and handheld devices), sends the unique identifier in real time to a central system where it is matched with the corresponding vehicle data such as registration number, owner details, make, model, colour, and tax/insurance renewal dates.
..."

Oh you wacky Brits. As if already being the most surveilled nation wasn't enough... ;)

Ah, but how do you KNOW we don't already have them? Those stickers the DMV gives us are awfully thick... ;)

A town around here recently installed cameras at all entrance and exit roads. It keeps track of the plate numbers and does a check on everyone who drives thru. Here is the news article.


Town to install cameras

Wonder if Transio is on the list of suspicious people after his incident at the passport agency!

I find this camera/surveillance trend incredibly depressing.

I think maybe all the traffic lights should say 'conform' on them

Couldn't agree more. Will ride in on the coattails of 9/11, and each year you'll be monitored more & more.

Land of the CCV, home of the replayed. :rolleyes:
