Recently, Fusion did a report on how government officials are tracking vehicle license plate numbers. The way the government is tracking movement of license plate numbers are being track is by taking pictures of the plates. These images are shared among federal, state and local police officers who can request information from a data system that may or may not have images of the driver and passenger.
Some people are bothered by knowing this imply because it goes against one’s right to privacy. The reason for this program that the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) created is to track where drug trafficking is going on, where its being moved to and so forth.
Its insane to know that one can have their picture taken without even knowing until you get pulled over and a police official request information from the database. Oakland, Calif., is an example of how the system is tracking down movement and numbers.
