Slashdot links to a The Independant article about Britain being the first country to monitor every car journey. The Slashdot summary goes like this: "Using a network of cameras that can record license plates, Britain plans to build a database of vehicle movement for police and security services: rollout begins in March. Can't someone just swap/steal/disable the tracking device? Seems to me just another way to track the average citizen and not those wishing to avoid authorities."
