Submission + - UK license-plate cameras have "gaps in coverage" (guardian.co.uk)

Aguazul2 writes: UK police are sad that despite having the most comprehensive driver surveillance system of any developed country, there are still gaps in their coverage. From the article: The cameras automatically record plate/time/location information and send it to a central data store, which has complete nationwide records for 6 years. Also interesting is that a unspecified "particular driving style" can be used to evade detection by the cameras. It appears, however, that criminals are well aware of the cameras and take other routes. Big Brother technology, coming soon to a country near you!
