+ - Double The Speeding Tickets!

The UK is deploying 4,000 new digital cameras to replace those using film to take pictures of speeding cars. Since the older cameras use up their film after two hundred shots they are expecting 120 million pounds sterling each year to be added to the coffers of the Treasury.

Besides shooting thousands of pictures and monitoring four lanes of traffic, the new cameras "...are also fitted with automatic number-plate recognition technology which alerts police if a wanted vehicle passes." <From The Telegraph> Lets monitor everyone all the time and see where they are and who they are talking to and what they are talking about. What place did George Orwell write about again?

Will 'W' and Company begin to deploy this technology in the USA? Any ideas on how to flux these cameras?

I have tried directly, google, cnet download and yahoo and it is just a big circle of going nowhere and the page coming up "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". What's up with that? I can go to any other page I want to. Is MicroSwag stopping it? I don't use the MS firewall. Are they p.o.'ed at me for that? Anyone else out there suffering the same thing?"
