British Road Surveillance Tracks Cars

Christian Science Monitor story on newly approved UK scheme to record and store all road trips of English motorists for two years in giant surveillance database. Not only recording every trip made by every car, but checking for current registration, warrants, insurance, licensing and any other aspect the government wants to attach and aggregate. Already there is a road tax surcharge for the busiest streets of London that is enforced by a more limited set of surveillance cameras.

This comes from the most heavily surveilled country in the world, which will also be establishing a national ID card by 2008. Truly Big Brother.
