Police are taking a leaf out of Google's book with their latest weapon in the war on motorists. - They are using cars with spy cameras on a mast. Drivers talking on their mobile phones, eating, applying make-up or otherwise driving illegally will be pictured. And as the telescopic cameras can zoom in from some distance, the first inkling that they have been snapped could be when a £60 fine lands on the doorstep.
Police say the new cars – similar to those used by Google to map town and city streets – will help reduce road deaths. But motorists say the Big Brother vehicles will merely be another cash cow for the Government and a further 'tax' on hard-pressed motorists.
This is part of a broader plan for total social control. We need all to be aware that if they can do it they will do it. Soon we will have nothing left. But every cloud has a silver lining. We will have nothing to lose either!! [IK, UK, 06/4/2009]
