    ACLU raises privacy concerns about police technology tracking drivers

    Police are gathering the vehicle information with surveillance technology called automatic license plate readers, and it's being stored -- sometimes indefinitely -- with few or no privacy protections, the ACLU said."The documents paint a startling picture of a technology deployed with too few rules that is becoming a tool for mass routine location tracking and surveillance," the ACLU said in a written statement.The license plate readers alert police to an automobile associated with an investigation, "but such instances account for a tiny fraction of license plate scans, and too many police departments are storing millions of records about innocent drivers," the ACLU said.

    How bout the "justice department" falsely pursuing innocent people??? How bout when they are violating someone's right? Gonna complain about that?







    Didn't think so.

    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely

    I love my alpr. It is a very useful tool. However I feel that no rights are being violated. There is no expectation of privacy on a license plate that is posted on the outside of a vehicle.

    The ACLU should be labeled a hate group and domestic terrorist organization.
