I just recently noticed the M8 in the Glasgow area has had a crap load of new CCTV cameras installed in almost every junction, not only that but i've noticed a number of new cameras on high (street light like) poles and on high buildings to monitor large pedestrian areas in Renfrewshire.

Just wondering if anyones noticed similar increases in CCTV?

(i know this isn't exactly a political topic but it seams the most appropriate place)

You do realise Britain is the most surveilanced state in the world? We have more CCTVs than everybody else.

Soon, we will have CCTVs watching the CCTVs watching the CCTV's watching us, watching the CCTVs watching the CCTVs watching the CCTVs.....

I know


I do however have to argue that a lot of the CCTV is privately owned, the government in reality controls only a small portion of the total CCTV coverage.

I can see its benefits, in large shopping centers or public buildings they do prevent a lot of crime I know this from first hand knowledge.

But I couldn't help but think that the new CCTV I saw on the motorway just seem odd, theres way to many of them.

They will be used for catching crime in action certainly....but they can be used for other motives, of that have no doubt.

Catching crime in action is the natural excuse for why they exist....but soon enough this may be just a by-consequence of something else.

In one way there are good...I had my bike stolen and within the same day the police returned it to me through use of cctv, however perhaps if there were more police on patrol there wouldnt be such a need for cctv.

We have one guy for a village of about the same size, he has a bike! Go catch that guy who stole my car.

That England is the most survieled country in the history of the world. I watched a show on NAGO or something. God it was like there was a camera even in your own homes. I couldn't live like that. I surprised you all aren't more paranoid.

I just read an article a couple of days ago about a company who track vehicles using CCTV calculate there average speed then send out fines if they believe there breaking the speed limit, I wouldn't be surprised if that is what these new CCTV cameras are for.
