ANPR cameras are already all over the country monitoring your movements.
What additional privacy issues are you worried about?


Not me; the opponents of a road pricing system. Possibly because road
pricing would need an awful lot more of them.


Romania has a visitor car tax payable by everybody (for the pedants, who
enter with a car, obviously)

Required for the use of any road, not just motorways as in many other
jurisdictions

You register for it online so your reg number is stored electronically,
and therefore can by enforced automatically.* But I never did work out
how it actually was enforced.

For Westerners, it's a trivial sum of money, so no-one would
deliberately not pay it.* It's more a faff that anything else




The culprit who shot and killed someone, with a crossbow, who was living
in a remote cottage on Anglesey (after interfering with his TV dish) was
caught because his ?landrover ECU had recorded all its movements.
And I think all smart phones do that too.
