Town Will Photograph Every Vehicle Entering And Leaving

The Tiburon Town Council (a northern suburb of San Francisco) voted on Wednesday by 4 to 0 to install cameras to photograph every single car that enters or leaves in order to "make the community safer". Funny thing is that the town doesn't enjoy high crime figures. The idea is to photograph the license plates of every car that travels Tiburon's roads and compare the information with the police's list of the stolen and suspicious vehicles.

It is on a peninsula, from which there are only two roads. Luckily for them, it won't be too costly to install a few cameras.

One might ask: Don't people have the right to move around WITHOUT being monitored by the government at all times?

Probably not.

Fight technology with technology.

One could get one of these license plate photo shields.
