Keeping tabs on Virginians with Smart Tags

Publicola has this post highlighting this article in the Richmond Times-Dispatch about the use by law enforcement of data from the "Smart Tags" used to electronically pay tolls (at least on the Downtown Expressway and Powhite Parkway around Richmond).

Of course, they've got cameras on those roads, too, I suspect.

The next thing will be defense lawyers in criminal cases and lawyers in civil cases trying to get discovery of that government data.

Usually when I am on the Downtown Expressway I'm not concerned so much with anyone knowing I was there as wishing I had a few more quarters.
