Sheriff's Collecting Data on Vehicle Movement

Police amass vast databases of information on any vehicle that passes by their devices. Critics question where this is going.

Six Riverside County Sheriff's patrol cars based in Palm Desert, have technology to scan license plates of vehicles as they pass by.  Law enforcement says it's an invaluable tool to identify possible suspects in a crime, or to identify posilbe witnesses in an area.  Others say it's too close to government keeping tabs on your movements.

ONCE AGAIN IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE, NOTHING TO WORRIE ABOUT.

Tell me again how "having nothing to hide" becomes identifying witnesses. What happens when they pull you over for being a witness to something you don't remember seeing. What happens when they make a mistake, and they will make mistakes, and they pull you over. You've got nothing to hide, so you won't mind answering a few questions for them. This is big government "peeking" into your lives. I thought everybody wanted less government intrusion into our lives. I guess I'm just not liberal enough to accept something like this and don't think I ever will be.

The police don't even bother to pull over expired tags and California vehicles displaying only one license plate, what makes anyone believe there will be a huge onslaught of drivers being pulled over. Geesh, Jackie

It economics Jackie. If they can fine you and have you go through the court system it keeps the greenbacks flowing and the system grows even larger.
