Drivers To Get Parking Tickets In The Post From 'Big Brother' CCTV Cameras

Recommended Posts

Millions of motorists will receive parking tickets by post after being caught on CCTV camera under rules that have been called "Orwellian". Drivers spotted by the "Big Brother" cameras also face fines of up to £120 as part of a Government shake-up of parking regulations which comes into effect from Monday, March 31. Until now, wardens have had to hand a ticket to a driver or leave it on the windscreen. But now they will also be able to issue the tickets remotely, without the driver knowing about it until they receive the Penalty Charge Notice through their letterbox. cctvcameraST2603_468x550.jpgThere are fears that councils will use the regulations as yet another way to raise money. Remote CCTV teams will be able to monitor streets to spot drivers who park on a yellow line or overstay at a meter. The rules also give councils the power to set a sliding scale of fines of up to £120 for different types of parking offence. Motorists in London face the highest fines, while those outside the capital can receive a maximum fine of £70. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/arti...in_page_id=1770LOL at the people who thought cameras would be used to protect you. They will be used in many different ways in time to come.

All good and well but when they are used for more sinister observation, it's wrong. The information they gather will be abused.

Tried telling my mum this and she laughed and told that was the weed talking (proper against drugs) even though I was stone cold sober.
