Police Took And Uploaded 114,155 licence Plate Tracking Scans AN HOUR Into A Universal Database To Track And Predict Every Americans' Travel Habits

- Police didn’t take 114,155 licence plate scans an hour;

- Police didn’t upload 114,155 licence plate scans an hour to a universal database;

- It isn’t a universal database;

- Police didn’t use it to predict every American’s travel habits. 

The system is largely the same in the U.K., surrounded by security access (local, national and VOI level), audits and multiple pieces of Legislations. 

ANPR is an incredibly useful piece of technology. From low stop to Murder. Sandra popping to the Co-op for mackerel need not worry.

But what if she doesn't want the authorities to have a record of those trips? Maybe she feels the same way about her mackerel-purchasing excursions as we do about Signal messages. That even though there is nothing illegal about them and nothing to hide, they should still be private.

Take the train? Or a bus? Or a taxi? Although, if she’s that worried, she’d have to wear a disguise in case any CCTV picks Sandra up on the way to & fro to the shops.

RE Signal / private messages. As per the above analogy, the alternative mode of transport is the likes of WhatsApp/Messenger and the like but, for added privacy, Signal (the cctv ...)
