Big Brother fears over cameras on motorways

Ireland -The number of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras will increase from 80 to 126, allowing transport chiefs to track individual vehicles between two points and calculate the flow speed of traffic in order to inform motorists in real time of delays ahead.However, the cameras deliberately supply an “encrypted” partial version of the number plates and only hold the data for a limited period of time so that individual cars are not monitored.The NRA was yesterday keen to stress that motorists would not be targeted.
