Wondering what all the new roadside cameras are around the Uk / Northern Ireland?
They are Spy Cameras
Ask the Police and they will tell you this:
"They are safety cameras"
"If you not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about"
The Police will not tell you this:
Along with instantly checking you for Road Tax, Insurance and Mot, which obviously every road user should have. You are also presumed guilty of committing an array of criminal offences. This supposedly gives the police justification to then store your every journey on a database for a minimum of two years even if you are completely innocent.
Every time you pass a ANPR Camera your details are taken and stored on the national police database for two years.
Checked against DVLNI Tax Database
Checked against Motor Insurance Database
Checked against National MOT Database
Location of passing Stored for 2 years
Cars registration Stored for 2 years
Time of passing Stored for 2 years
Direction of travel Stored for 2 years
Car make and model Stored for 2 years
Car colour Stored for 2 years
Registered drivers name Checked & Stored for 2 years
Registered drivers address Checked & Stored for 2 years
Registered drivers date of birth Checked & Stored for 2 years
Positive "hits" are stored for 5 years
There are 10 Billion innocent peoples movements stored on the UK database to date.
15 million innocent peoples details are logged and stored every day
Your cars number plate is also your:
Your name and address
Car insurance details
Car tax details
Car Mot details
Previous convictions (if any)
They are NOT just reading number plates
Using sophisticated data mining software such as the "Northgate BOF 2.3 Advanced Data Miner" that is used by all Uk police forces, allows every journey you ever make to be tracked, traced, mapped and spied upon for the previous two years. This is done entirely without your consent or knowledge.
Northgate openly admit that this software-
"By analysing the 98% of data that you don’t currently use, you can turn
ANPR into a critical source of intelligence for proactive policing."
"allows users (not just analysts) to access the 2% of reads that result in hits, but more importantly, to access the 98% that offer intelligent leads"
(The 98% being completely innocent people)
It has also been done without the consent of your MP
There has been no public consultation, there has been no parliamentary debate and no legislation has ever been introduced for ANPR cameras.
This system also has no safeguards, independent scrutiny or regulation whatsoever in place.
