EFF Asks Court to Curb Access to License Plate Databases

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is asking a state appeals court to say that data collected from automated license plate readers is private, and police should get a warrant before using that data. The non-profit digital rights group says license plate data is often stored for years, giving police sensitive information about people’s lives, such as where they worship, who their friends are, and what meetings they attend.
