We're already being tracked with our phones


I'm not being tracked by my phone. I don't own a cell-phone and never will. My telephone hangs on the wall, like everybody's used to do 20 years ago. I don't have a smart-TV, smart light bulbs, or smart anything. My car is over two decades old. And there are no electronics on my 1950 Chevy or 1976 Dodge. I don't need all that "modern" crap. Well, nobody actually needs it.

I am already looking for a classic car to drive so I can avoid all the advances in technology. I am constantly getting asked to upgrade to the latest vehicle and I keep telling them I want less technology not more.

I preferred my old 74 Firebird. I understood every system and could fix it as well. Now too many things are black boxes and hidden. Take me back to simpler days.

Jesus christ man. Maybe you might want to reel in the paranoia and live a little. Sounds to me like you're condemning your own life to the past because you think that the big bad boogie man might come for you if you follow society into the future.

Technology is a good thing and can enhance your life. You're going to watch other people around you grow and leave you behind because you're scared that the government want to track and surveil you.

That's really sad.

heres the big problem for me: someone hacks or has a friend that gets your home info etc...attached to the vehicle and then its open season on your house while they track your car real time.

I think about all those "Amber Alerts".
License plate says " Kidnapped Child Onboard"
Problem solved...

I just simply cannot see any abuse with this. Nope, none at all.

You can tracked using any phone. It does not have to be a smart phone and it does not need to have GPS.

Alrighty then. If it becomes a state licensing requirement, I suppose we won't see you driving.

The Bridge will be free soon.
Upside of the Gloucester route is a load of tidy Pubs though

Haha yes mate

B-roads are the way forward if you want to sneak around undetected though, it's still possible, just takes longer on winding single lane roads lol

We should utilise the B Roads and arrange an ATS UK meet Mun.

Haha yes!

I actually like turning my basic mobile phone off (£12 from Argos, just texts and makes calls) then driving on B roads into the moors knowing that 'the state' hasn't got a clue where I am. Childish maybe, but it makes camping feel more free if you know what I mean...I do tell friends where I am though, you know if emergencies or whatever.
Outside of major population centres it is pretty easy to disappear still on this island.

All the Cops are where the money is, their isn't much profit on a B road.

All of this stuff that people THINK is "cool" and "trendy" will cause nothing but problems. Write that down in your little "black book" or whatever, but keep it in mind. Watch.

That's a threat, but not as big as the obvious one.
