So what if they know where I go? Are private investigators breaking the law?
Specifically the claim is big brother, but what does that mean? What Constitutional laws would be broken by having information that places a license plate at a certain location at a certain time? I suspect its the actions that could be done having that information that is the concern. So it isnt really having that information on file somewhere thats the problem its what could be done with that information. But what could be done with that information is the question?
Most people live mundane boring lives. They drive to the store visit friends and gas stations. Perhaps go on vacations. Its really not anything that having that information would be relevant to anyone, but perhaps the person that owns the car. It would be a good service actually, you could look at the records and be able to say yea I was there on time but you were not. But then cell phones with GPS can already do that.
It just makes one wonder what people are doing that they are afraid of law enforcement knowing.
Personally I live in a not so populated area. Once I leave town there isnt any patrol cars to capture my location. And sometimes in town you hardly see a cop car.
I also know that the local law enforcement keep tabs on peoples property. That way they can issue a ticket if you do something against a ordinance. Our right to privacy isnt really that big and never has been. The reason is because most things that we do are done in the public. Driving a car is only done in the public. So what if they know where you go and when. Its the why that is the concern.
