Yes.

Criminal scum shouldn't be driving, they should be in jail. Civvies get bitchu when they get pulled over. No, I don't care if your tag expired a week ago, it should've been on the car the DAY THE MONTH CHANGED. These people simply prove they're reckless, and that they don't fit in a healthy society and should be thrown in jail.

Not inherently unethical, but it will become unethical when they start geotagging plate locations and storing them.

Unethical.

As government grows fuckhueger and fuckhueger, your license plate becomes yet another identifier to which personal information can be attributed to in some database somewhere. Databases can be exploited always, there is no exception to this rule.

There should be no personal information tied to your license plate other than your full legal name and vehicle registration status.

System is horribly flawed.

While I was stationed in JApan, I kept my 240sx at my parents' house. So it could get driven every so often and kept in a garage. My mother was driving it once and got pulled over. The plate reader said the car owner(me) had an expired license. Except I didn't. I had license form the last state i was stationed in. Didn't have a license of the state my car was registered in. All of which didn't matter anyways. Since I was stationed overseas. My license never expires.

The tow truck companies have access to the same license plate tracking databases that the police do... and they sell your information to the police to add it to the system.

For as long as tracking technology has even existed, governments have had the capacity to spy on you if they had a mind to. Putting it in police cars slightly reduces the effort required, but it has been true that the government could track you given "enough effort" for decades.

I'd say the problem isn't that the government is capable of spying on people, it's that people, reasonably or otherwise, think that they are likely to use that capability.

Aww, the dumb druggie is mad

>>14255415
Not him, but I don't see the point in arguing about what the problem is.
We should be arguing about what the solution is.

And it starts by asking some very basic questions:
>exactly what information is being collected and stored?
>how long is the data stored by law enforcement after it is harvested?
>how much is law enforcement paying towing companies for the information?

Then we can start making some changes to try to curb this practice.
If it's illegal for a criminal to sell your SSN to the highest bidder on the internet, then why is it legal for towing companies and automotive repossession workers to sell your license plate info to the highest bidder? Why is that for sale in the first place? Furthermore why is law enforcement attributing your entire legal record to your license plate?

Unethical in practice. Little laws on retention means the cops used it as a mechanism to log everyone's location history indefinitely until it can be used against you, even if there is no reason to suspect you of a crime until months or years after the data is collected.

Are you retards serious? This isn't a violation of your privacy. It's why license plates exist. This software does exactly what police (and even you) can already do.

The name and address of the registered car owner is not personal information it is public information, just like your criminal history.

You can literally go to the DMV and look up names and addresses of license plates yourself.

Just because you don't like it, or it's your opinion that it's unethical, doesn't mean that it's unjust. Fucking idiots

That's the whole point of the second ammendment. We can afford to let little things like this that DO serve a legitimate purpose in some instances, slip, because we have the ability to destroy said system if we need to. The real worry is if we are still able to abolish our government if the need arises.

Making it easier for cops to read license plates is not preventing that you paranoid fucks. Go back to /pol/.
