    Default UK's '24x7 vehicle movement database' begins

    This article was posted today on "The Register", regarding the UK's plans to monitor vehicle movements, save the information for two years, enforce speed limits, and so forth. The article summarizes the problems better than I can. Although The Register tends to get a little sensational from time to time, the story is still disturbing on multiple levels.

    If this is some April fools joke and I'm the fool, I'd be happy to hear it.

    Wow talk about Big Brother watching. Its like that Tom Cruise movie Minority Report where the billboards ID you and address you by name.

    Would they use it like Vascar and time a car over a specific distance? Then you're really fecked.
