i'd be more worried about how the US - rather than Britain - uses this technology actually - in any case Mr dice let the cat outta the bag:

""We see tremendous advantages to the (e-Plate) for everything from verifying registration and insurance to Amber (missing child) Alerts," said Dike."

No mention of terrorism there, but I suspect terrorists may foil the police in any case by nefariouly keeping their registration and insurance up to date.

I was hoping that the chip would have some other neat feature, like maybe you could set up a "car account" with it, and it would automatically signal to toll roads, parking garages, and car ferries to let you through and send a bill to your account, like a more universalized EZPass system, but no, it's just a pure tracking device.

Darnit, if I'm going to live in a dystopian surveillance society, I at least want some neat fringe benefits.
