    Just think, in the future the police will pull you over and will have special codes to access your command and interigate it for the speeds driven. We will be convicted and found guilty by the tools that assist us.

    I agree with that, if you don't get a choice then it shouldn't be there.

    Thats why I said much earlier that the motorist needs to push for legistlation that means that data can't be collected by police.

    My concern with the pick up example is that if you refuse to give the data, that it may be used to implicate guilt by refusal to co-operate.

    If the greens etc can push for banning fox hunting why can't motorists as a pressure group push for rights to protect the motorist against intrusion. Our state seems to wish to use technology to erode our privacy, and it worries me that so few of us seem a) bothered and b) willing to do anything about it.

    Thats why I oppose any scheme that stores data, voulterily or otherwise.

    At least though the data they would have would not be legally be able to be used in your conviction.
