I don't care. The cops are not looking for me.

Why are we only NOW finding out that the retention policy was reduced to 90 days? Why the big secret? When was the city mayor and government going to inform the rest of us? This is truly government run amok.

Still too long. For that matter they shouldn't be recording data on and tracking law abiding citizens at all. Zero days.

This should not be public data. All businesses have access to this data and can track you down. The government should not be doing the dirty work of privately owned companies. I am sick and tired of of these businesses leeching off the taxpayer.

Quit your whining. If you've done nothing wrong there's nothing to worry about. I'm all in for any technology that helps catch the bad guy.

The government exists to serve the citizenry, not to dominate us. Actions like this or the drones they use to monitor us from the skies are an abuse of their powers, invasion of our privacy and evidence of reckless spending. We need to force them to immediately stop this type of crap. The first step is to vote out your congress critter next week.

This makes the job easier for the Police. They do not have to READ each plate when looking for something/someone. Stolen cars are more easily found this way and am sure there are other advantages. If you have nothing to hide why do you care. People complain about Cameras around the city. However, if this would help find someone, solve a crime, etc. why are they so upset -- Unless they are the criminal.

If the plate comes back as clean, the data should not be held at all.
