ALPR's Watching You

Freedom of movement may well be a thing of the past in Tiburon, CA if Automated License Plate Recognition cameras are activated to record and track the movements of all vehicles entering and exiting the city.

Your presence has been noted.

The posh and picturesque town that juts into San Francisco Bay is poised to do something unprecedented: use cameras to record the license plate number of every vehicle that crosses city limits.

According to the article, Tiburon’s biggest “problem” is that residents feel too safe:

…a frustrating twist in Tiburon crime: Residents feel so safe that they don’t lock their cars and homes.

A zeal for control, and not public safety, becomes the obvious motivating factor for such a system. Just look at the city’s crime statistics:

In all of 2007 and 2008, Tiburon recorded 196 thefts, 37 burglaries and a dozen stolen cars.

    This is so sad. These residents of this town must be asleep at the wheel!

    If these people don’t rise up and demand this be stopped, it will demonstrate such ignorance on the part of literally anyone 18+ in the town (ALL voters).

    If people have ever doubted at what point “1984” will no longer become fiction, they are seeing the slope get a hell of a lot more slippery this week. Please Tiburon residents, for the good of the constitution, demand change- and not the McBama kind..

    Time to add another city to the list of cities that I will never visit.

    My list so far:

    Tucson, AZ
    Showlow, AZ
    Lancaster, PA
    Tiburon, CA

    Best thing to do is call their tourism/visitor bureaus and tell them why you will not ever visit their cities.

    Walter- im sorry that you classify speeding as a “petty civil offense” you obviously have not been affected by the death of someone close to you by someone who was in toomuch of a hurry to follow the laws of a civilized nation !! really how hard is it to just drive the posted speed limit? redflex installs the equiptment with their resources…. why shouldnt they have control…. you make a great point about their involvement and their should be oversight…. but your rants about them acting fraudulently and of law makers doing nothing to fund elections is the rantings of a sore loser… so walter is everyone but you corrupt?

    doc- there are systems in place to undo what the elected officials have done. there is petitions, yes you have heard of them… an initiative that is truly favored by the citizens will collect the required signatures…. they will seek where to sign them out… if it fails… then it was not the will of the majority of the citizens… the second remedy is to replace those that you do not think speak for you… your problem is that you think the only things that matter are your opinions… you ignore everyone else points of view…. sorry to see that your beloved republican party is letting you down…. i think it is great as it is a sign that we can have those that represent us think with their hearts and the people and NOT to what their politcal party “wants” !! hopefully it is a sign of things to come when we can be done with political parties !!!

    its time to put some teeth into photo radar …. this is a good first step…. now we need an agency for oversight ( paid for by the fines) and laws that force those that receive tickets to pay…. with points mean increased insurance rates…. maybe they will get the hint that some at the state capitol are serious about the “petty civil offenses”

    The city of Mesa parks the plate scanners on Stapley Dr and scans all the plates. They are not telling anyone about this… I have sent the pics to camerafraud.
