In my original post, I pointed out that you are not protecting your privacy by not using EZ-PASS as the toll lanes have cameras that read and record your license plate numbers.
Now it is not only the areas that have EZ-PASS that use this technology. It can be used almost anywhere. Take the recent case of school teacher Kelsey Peterson who kidnapped/ran off with her 13 year old student to Mexico. Was her capture partly due to this technology?
Now take a look at this border crossing into Mexico:
Police were already alerted to their movements after Peterson's car was spotted crossing into Mexico on Tuesday, and arrived just after they left the hotel. - IHT
Notice, the lanes into Mexico are unmanned.
So, just how was the car spotted?
Go see my original post for video of license plate reading software in action.
Police: Arrested teacher, undocumented student had vague plan of life together in Mexico - IHT
