Big Brother still watching us

CNN) -- Police around the United States are recording the license plates of passing drivers and storing the information for years with little privacy protection, the American Civil Liberties Union said Wednesday.

The information potentially allows authorities to track the movements of everyone who drives a car

Yup - Big Brother has been watching (and tracking) for years - some things for decades.
Everyone who uses a cell phone, can be found almost immediately. Drive your car, use an ATM, use a credit card, and your location is known. Go to any private business with security cameras, and you are seen.

Do you have a job? A social security number?
Do you use a computer (of any kind)? Do you pay a utility bill, cable bill, phone bill, grocery bill, insurance? Do you have a bank account or a drivers license? Do you vote? Do you write checks? Ever applied for a loan? Do you have a mailing address? email? - - - -
Your habits are known - and you can be tracked, whether or not you are driving a car.

 That was a lot of work for the DMV to re-enter near plate numbers.
