(My Fox NY)   Remember when they said your E-ZPass wasn't used to track anything but your tolls on toll roads? Yeah, about that   ( divider line

LeroyB: My EZ Pass is wrapped up in it's metallic bag in the storage compartment of the center console.

Consider who provided that metallic 'signal blocking bag' to you.

lifeboat: Is it also tracking my television viewing habits?

I knewthis would happen!

Never missed "Melrose Place" or "Lost In Space"
I've seen each "Amazing Race" and "Without A Trace"
But I only watched "Will And Grace" one time one day
Wish I hadn't 'cause E-ZPass now thinks I'm gay

Macular Degenerate: And people said I was crazy when I didn't get an EZ Pass tag because they saved you 10% off your tolls. I'd rather preserve my privacy than sell it for $0.10 per transaction.

Your plate gets photo'd, you gain no privacy, you waste time and gas in line for the toll, and you pay more (and it's far more than a 10% discount in NYC)

/I actually really wished they issued speeding tickets with the traffic data
//fastest way to get limits raised that I can think of is ticket everyone!

Shadow Blasko: I know that traffic flow rate is useful to google for travel time and traffic updates (thats what they told us they use them for) but they have made my radar detector useless.

Time to buy one that doesn't suck. Escort, Beltronics, and Valentine all use TSR- Traffic Sensor Rejection. Whistler might too. It creates a half second delay in the detector on K band... the pulses from those sensors are shorter than that so they get ignored. Anything longer than that is a more real concern, so it alerts.

Just don't buy a Cobra. Those are damn near worthless and have a nasty habit of setting off everybody else's decent units from a harmonic of the oscillator... when I get a Ka alert in the 33.6 range I look around and sure enough, some asshole is using a useless POS Cobra, often pointed right at the sky.

Hermione_Granger: Ivo Shandor: It doesn't really matter any more. License plate readers are good enough that you don't need dedicated RF transmitters.

I was thinking about this today. If had a decent enough high res photo of my license plate and put it beneath a holder - I think if it looked realistic enough, it could stand up to a visual test and beat the scanners because it would just be photo paper?

Just a theory....I'm willing to entertain all rejections as to why this wouldn't work.

My library card has a barcode on it - but I recently discovered my grocery store uses barcode scanners! - just what are they doing with this information? And why does the grocery store want to know my reading habits? SECRET GOVERNMENT INTELLIGENCE PROGRAMS!

How else can measure our infinite freedom, besides tracking it?

If we don't spy on ourselves then you'd be paying 10 for a banana and the terrorist would have won and God cant destroy evil without destroying all the evil people and stuff.
