Nonsense. A license plate on a vehicle driven on public roadways/right of ways or visible from public can be photographed, indexed and stored by anyone. You can't trespass one's eyes. If it can be seen from the public, it can be photographed by anyone. The ideology of banning this is moronic. If one doesn't want to be photographed, don't be visible or go out in public.My point is that private companies would happily use this data behind our backs to sell more product whether it be products or services. Call it a conspiracy or not, it's creepy and should be banned.
depends on what you mean by "run". Obtaining insurance valid/registration valid status, lots of private companies get this from databases brokered to them by the states and those states get revenue for sharing that data.I thought LE need reasonable cause to run your plate. I support LE, but stuff like this doesn't pass the smell test
