The Wall Street Journal has reported that the Justice Department has been building a database which tracks vehicles across the United States.

The license-plate tracking program reportedly reads plates and tracks cars on major highways across the U.S. The program’s high-tech cameras also reportedly take photos that are clear enough to identify drivers and passengers.

WSJ: Justice Dept. Tracking Millions of Vehicles

First the red light cameras, then cameras on every street corner and now this. Tracking your every move either from your cell phone, emails, IP addys, etc. and all for what? When was the last time they stopped a mexican drug cartel and shut them down completely from coming over the boarder using this tech? What about tracking and finding islamo terrorists? Domestic terrorists? Hell, even the recent so called wannabe bonnie and clyde teens that were out and about until caught recently? Oh yeah, its never actually used to catch people, just keep track of them.

Well, that is the only reason that they ever made license plates.... to identify you.

If it was just about making you pay for the privilege, they would make you produce your valid registration when stopped.

Makes me think of good old Orwell:

"There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized." -1984
