License Plate Cameras

Feds Sued for License Plate-Tracking Data

Our masters in D.C. haven't been very forthcoming

|

Today we sued the federal government to enforce Freedom of Information Act requests we filed over the summer to learn about how it is using a technology that can track Americans' location with increasing efficacy: automated license plate readers. (See today's legal complaint, our original FOIA requests, and a blog we posted when we made those requests.)

We know enough about the rapid expansion of this technology to be very concerned about it, but there's a lot we don't know.
