No. Next question.

The sensor alarm's the cops console in this case. They may or may not pull you over and issue a ticket for an equipment problem. Something along the lines of 'License Plate Light Bulb Not Operational - replace and reinspect'.
The sensor alarm's the cops console in this case. They may or may not pull you over and issue a ticket for an equipment issue - generic or otherwise.
Your good passive defenses include:
- Using a full plate cover which filters UV or is smoke-colored
- Using a full plate cover with magic tape on the inside to change the IR appearance of the actual lettering of your plate.
- Not washing your car.
The State of New York (atleast, out in the Western bit, where I live) already engages in this practice. A lot of the municipalities and law enforcement agencies here have taken advantage of state and federal money to equip cruisers with the Remington Plate Reader (read: http://www.elsag.com/detail.asp?i=17). The cars use the vehicles onboard AVL, combined with the results of the plate reader, and transmits the location of the cruiser with what plates its spotted back to the State Police.
The pitots on this aircraft were heated, and on this specific tail number, had been replaced recently.
The leading theory also includes that the volume of supercooled water ingested by the tube simply overwhelmed the heater elements on all three pitots.
Researcher Create Computer That Fits On Pen Tip
My team obviously went the wrong direction. We've just completed work on a breakthrough - a pen that's large enough to fit onto a computer - comfortably. We figured that computers were tired of just writing to disk, so we'd let them write on paper as well. The actual apparatus is so comically large, that, obviously, only a large-ish computer would want to use it.
Are you being funny?
...and more power to them.
Very clever. Quite a few places are considering similar bans, for different reasons. One of the more prevalent issues is union labor pushing to keep meter-readers in business.
If I lock the glove compartment in my car, I can refuse to open it, on the grounds that they will then need a warrant to search it.
If I cannot be compelled to hand over encryption keys for other forms of media, I'm not giving up a password to my mobile device, either.
At the same time, if they elect to seize and search my backpack, which is also locked, they have the option of breaking the lock to gain access to the contents. But is that legal? At that point, you're also destroying my property in the process.
Are these 'law enforcement officials' permitted to install software on devices in the course of conducting a 'search'?
You got the idea, though.
