Surveillance and Privacy with Public Licensing of Automobiles

An interesting go around with the issue of surveillance with license plate readers and the availability of the acquired data to the public.

Since license plates are a requirement to operate within the public arena - with all the liability of identification, insurance, and law enforcement functions involved; where are the limits of our government (i.e. of the people, by the people, for the people) in saying such information can be denied to the people being surveilled?

This particular topic came to me through ALPCA - the Automobile License plate Collectors Association - that I am a member of. A really cool hobby.

I submitted it under politics, but why not Government, why not Technology, why not Legislation, jeez. why not Philosophy?
